This mandala fills me with peace. I love the figures, Karin!
HOW DID YOU DO THIS? It is so perfect! You must have geometry in your bag of majic! Awestruck, here!
Wow! Amazing! Who needs words when you can says so much more with pictures. This makes me remember how important artists are.
Very touching, amazing expression! Love everything about it and how it feels to take it in.
Karin I didn't see the human figures at first the are so integral to the mandala as part of the design...and then the eyes emerged for me...this is exquisite.Diving in...surrendering...witnessing...blossoming.May this be a day of relative ease for you,gentle steps,laura
Hi everyone,so glad you enjoyed this mandala, and recognized all the elements I was trying to bring to it. In part it was created with a specific theme in mind. I've been invited to be part of an exhibition titled Women about Women, so Svasti, you nailed the women supporting women aspect. I wanted to work out the idea on a small scale, before possibly creating it similarly, large. We've also had some spring like weather - rains and warmer temperatures had me seeing ahead towards the fresh colors and growth of spring.Thanks again, for all your thoughtful responses! with love, Karin
Wow, what a beautiful piece! There is just so much to take in. The colours are full of promise.
Karin, I'm gob-smacked. Thank you. xoxoxoxo
Karin I didn't expect such a beautiful journal post today. Maybe because I feel like crap.Oh Karin, it is so beautiful. Lean on me dear one. Let's hold on to each other.Have you had round 2 yet.xoxoxo
That is just so stupid, if you need the zofran, you need it. And clearly you need it.Are you eating popsicles, anything dry even like potato chips is good too. Do not drink when you are eating it will make you nauseated. You need to drink lots but don't do it while you are eating.I love you.xoxoxo
Hi Karin...your work is just divine!! I have been browsing through your blog..wow!! Found you through sweet Renee..thought I would pop by and say hello!Have you tried chamomile tea..sometimes helps the nausea..try it iced..it might help. Stupid insurance!!!Hang in there, Sarah
thank you for the tips Renee and Sarah - I will do all you've suggested. I have kept the no drinking with food tip Renee, but still haven't gotten popsicles. I seem to be well hydrated, and I'm doing better today... thanks again, xox
Just magical. Definitely one of my favorites!
Wow...don't know how I missed this one earlier in the week...possibly my favorites of all your work that I've seen...
Charming and playful. Reminds me of Matisse.
this is awesome and joyful and so full of movement and colour . . . has really given me a lift to see it!!
This is amazing. I seriously cant even express to you how amazed I am right now.
This is wonderful, Karin! If this is a "sketch" for a bigger piece, i can't wait to see it!
Just back from a week away...all I can say is "Wow!" - that word came out of my mouth when I saw this piece. How very beautiful ! You amaze me, Karin...amaze and inspire me.Big love to you, Beautiful One !
