Mandala Monday: More circles

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been involved in this workshop:

In one series of painting exercises, I was pleased {but not surprised} to see circles.  Lots of circles.  Very similar to the simple mandalas from this month’s exercises in The Mandala Workbook by Susanne F. Fincher

Here are a few of the paintings.  23×30 Acrylic on paper.

If you’re in the Atlanta, GA area come buy some original art.  Your walls will thank you {and so will that child who needs a winter coat or food.}

Hope to see you there!

Magnetic poetry {summer words and shift}

This summer's magnetic poetry

This is the corner of the magnetic poetry board that sits on my desk.  I’ve been staring at these words all summer. I’ve also been melancholy and slow to create.  That’s uncharacteristic for me this time of year.  The summer is usually light and clear, while I often get a bit blue in January.  Maybe busy, maybe sad, maybe still trying to figure it out.  I think it’s time for a change, so I thought that a new set of words would be a good place to start.  Here’s a capture before the shift.  I’ll share the new view when it’s there.
