Two More Drawings in Mandala "Evolution"

Both of these were drawn in my sketch book with "Precise" pen.

In my life there are many passages going on at the same time.  (Probably that's the same for all of us.)  I may be rendering a site specific commissioned abstract painting, a house portrait, or a landscape/garden painting for clients,  while in other blocks of time I'll sketch what is in front of me at the moment or care for a loved one or play with grandchildren or friends.  There is also the inner artist (I take great liberties using "artist") striving to make unique statements, testaments, profound illustrations conveying enlightenment, history, beauty, injustices, and/or every other idea know to humankind.

Here's what I have been doing the past few months as my musings have lead me into new areas of exploring line, form, color and contemplative spiritual content.  I am happily enjoying this new phase.

The drawings in sequence:

                                            "Beginning Trees"

                                                     "High Noon"



                                                      "First Mandalas"

                                          "Crown Mandala"

                                                   "Mandala on Coffee Filter"
