No Resolution Mandala

October 27, 2016

#inktober #haikutober Day 27

I am still enjoying making mandalas so I stayed with it. I can’t seem to get on Arizona time and have been waking up at 4-5am so I go for a walk, eat breakfast and start a mandala. My jet lag from Wisconsin (2 hours) won’t let up.


           ‘Thoughts swirling around

             Crashing into each other

              No resolution’

Pens:TWSBI, Lamy, Piper Cub, Micron and colored inks

#inktober #haikutober Day 26

Yesterday I committed to Julie Gibbons ‘5 days of Mandala Magic’ starting in November. I got in the mandala mood and did this one. I’m definitely ready for mandalas now. 


‘Circles and echoes

Blue, red and black harmony

Mandala pleasure’

3pens and 3 different color inks

A desert Agave Mandala


          ‘Desert Agave

            When their flowering is done

            The end is coming’

Full Moon

Playing with color and then thinking ‘Cactus Monday’ and haiku:

Luminous splendor

Full moon over the desert

A moon to wish on’

Love Knot Mandala

August 23, 2016

I haven’t used my ink pen in nearly 2 months so was feeling the need to hold it in my hand and sketch. I found the image on Pixabay so I created a mandala and wrote a haiku.

‘Look at this symbol

It’s made of simple fibers

Woven into love’

Abstract Mandala

August 4, 2016

I’ve been painting a few abstracts just for the fun of it.  And to see what’s in there. 

‘An abstract painting

Can reveal surprises

See the octopus?’

Happy Daisy Mandala

‘You’re beautiful

So sunny, bright and happy

A daisy cousin’
