Very simple and beautiful .... is the calligraphy your own? I love the fanciful quality to it - very secretive and special ...
Hi Kim - thank you. Yes, it's a made up calligraphic 'language' that I find very meditative to do. The rhythmic automatic movement can take me away :)You can see a set of books I did, and read more about what it means to me here:Artsheal
Wow, that's a lot of writing! But the whole effect is very soothing. Lovely mandala.
What a gorgeous mandala! And I'm very impressed with your caligraphy, especially that its a made up language. Stunning!
Wow that is incredible and must have taken quite some time for the caligraphy! The painting is beautiful and I love that all of the print in underneath.Fantastic!Blessings,Leslie
Yeah, it does take a really long time. These pages took about eight hours, which is probably why I am not up for doing any today! But I, too, am pleased with the effect of layering the image over it - I'm going to have to do more with that on some clay board or something. One of the beauties of working in a little book (as many of you know) is the experimentation with process that I can do, and save for referencing when I want to work bigger, or go into more deeply later.Anyway, thank you all for your appreciative comments :)
Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts!
Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who come alive.
Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
