Dragonfly Hug

August 3, 2014

This idea has been in my mind but I sure had difficulty getting the idea on paper.  I like using nature as my inspiration.

A dragonfly hug
To this mandala of blooms
It is mutual

I’m Back!

August 1, 2014

Two daisies are good
Three is even better
I’m back creating


Here’s one I forgot
I will use it to come back
And create again!

A little note: I closed this blog down two years ago because I was finding my art on pinterest and usually without credit to me.

I was upset to say the least.

Today I posted one of my past mandalas in ‘Artist Journal Workshop’ on Facebook and it received so much interest and wonderful comments I decided to open my blog again.

I was going to sit down and create a mandala and found I had done one in June.  Serendipity!

Thanks for great friends

‘Spectacles’ Mandala

August 25, 2012

The prompt at One Single Impression this week is ‘Spectacles’ as suggested by Locomente.

You know I had fun creating a mandala with this wonderful prompt.

My haiku:

Lay down some color
Spray on the water to create
A bright spectacle

and another came to mind as well:

Color explosion
Now that is a spectacle
Behold and enjoy

“Shortcut” Mandala

August 4, 2012

The prompt at “One Single Impression” this week is ‘Shortcut’ as suggested by moi.

A shortcut to love
Is a long way to happy
Now and forever

“Balloon” Mandala

July 7, 2012

The prompt at One Single Impression this week is ‘balloon’ as suggested by Harshad Mehta.

The balloon soars high
Carrying my love to you
Catch it please oh please! 

Thanks to Jim and Harshad’s emails I have been inspired to create a mandala and haiku.  It has been way too long and time slips away too fast.

Good to be back.

“Inbox” Mandala

April 1, 2012

I created this mandala in response to the prompt at One Single Impression where I suggested the prompt of ‘Inbox’.

Ever the romantic I wrote this freeform poem

I have been waiting for so long
For that note of love
To fly into my inbox
Followed by a proposal
Forever love. 

“Muse” Mandala

February 25, 2012

The prompt at ‘One Single Impression’ this week is ‘MUSE’ as suggested by Leo.

My poem is from the heart.

Ah, my muse,
My favorite companion.
She makes me see the unique,
the beautiful,
the unusual,
the interesting
even the ugly.

Then she encourages me to illustrate them,
From eyes,
to brain,
to pen,
to paper.
to memory.

Thank you my muse for your help in keeping my life beautiful
And colorful!

Thanks for the great prompt Leo!
