  2. Hi Gary
    Thanks! Believe it or not, I have been very busy at my easel-just not busy posting. I'm back into a mode of creating mandalas and they are very time consuming. Lots of experimenting with design concepts and my rendering of them is "tighter" than my usual impressionist paintings, so this takes more time too. Also, creating a mandala is a meditation that I enjoy in a natural unfolding process, developing with meaningful increments of discovery for me.
    Always good to hear from you.
    Steven
