Geometric Mandala Painting: Jewel in the Lotus

Mandala painting: Jewel in the Lotus

"Jewel in the Lotus" started as a First Friday demo painting in December of 2014 and was finished sometime in 2015. It is acrylic on an 18x18" stretched canvas. It was created at a time when I was exploring a geometric style of mandala making through the use of a ruler and compass.

Did you know that a good 95% of the 10,000+ mandalas I've made over the last 10 years were created freehand? That's what makes a piece like this one special.

Looking at the series of photos below, you can see how I changed my mind about how I wanted it to look - eventually ending with elements inspired by art nouveau design.

As of this writing in 10/17, this piece is available for purchase. Please contact me for further details.
