You know, that reminds me of a Mandala. They're always so beautiful. Your ability to create such fantastic artwork is very cool. I create with words, but we both have the ability to give people something special that will enjoy.

Keep it going.

Yes, I have been looking into mandalas recently. The creation of these is very time consuming and it is a meditative process for me, so spot on.

I had the honor of watching one being created. Okay, it wasn't in person, but they had a web camera set up to capture the creation.

Just watching from the planning of the design on a table, to the actual creation. It's fantastic to watch. I just wish I could find the archived video.

Here are a couple of the drawings I did this summer. There are more, but I don't really want to mess with them.
