“Monument” was originally created in mid-February of 2011. It was painted using artist grade acrylic paints manufactured by Liquitex, Golden, and Daniel Smith on handmade Punjab watercolor paper.

When I created Monument, I wasn't sure if it was finished which is why it isn't signed. The original is now in a private collection in NY.

“Release” was created by first painting the mandala with masking frisket, then by using sponge brushes to apply 4 different colors of water based fountain pen ink on watercolor paper. Once dry, the frisket was rubbed off to reveal the white paper underneath and then those spaces were colored in with Copic multiliner markers
Letting Go: Release
The colors on this piece were a challenge to replicate, but I believe Ed got them as close as humanly possible. The original was given to the friend who influenced its creation.

“Learning a New Language” was created on canvas panel with artist grade acrylic paints. White detail was added with an acid free gel ink pen.
Enso Mandala and Learning a New Language
Learning a New Language almost didn't happen. I had been working on it early on and wasn't feeling it. I ended up with something that looked like a brick wall and it was my husband that encouraged me to continue. It was my 2nd choice for reproduction as so many people had requested it. The original is currently available for purchase.

“Enso” was created in mid November of 2010. It was painted with Golden and Daniel Smith artist grade acrylic paints on Multimedia Artboard.
Letting Go: Release. On right, Enso Mandala
Enso was one of my very first acrylic paintings and almost immediately upon its completion, I had received a request to purchase it. It was my 1st choice for reproduction.The original is not currently available for purchase.

“Broken Arrow” was originally created in mid-June of 2011. It is a mixed media piece painted using artist grade acrylic paints manufactured by Liquitex and Golden on handmade Punjab watercolor paper. White details were added over acrylic with an acid free white gel ink pen.

Broken Arrow Mandala
Broken Arrow was a late entry  - it had literally been finished days before taking these to Ed to be reproduced. It was a great choice as the reproduction POPS! The original is part of my personal collection.
