I so love the photos that are shared on PD Photo from Ireland.  I want to go there sometime myself.  This mandala, entitled “Khaga” (Sanskrit for air) was inspired by the flight of birds and a gorgeous rainbow.  I sought to express a feeling of “lightness of being.”

Air is the element of the East, connected to the soul and the breath of life. If you’re doing a working related to communication, wisdom or the powers of the mind, Air is the element to focus on. Air carries away your troubles, blows away strife, and carries positive thoughts to those who are far away.

Currently prints are available at Zazzle, and other products will be available soon, keep coming back, or let me know your requests.

And the photos that inspired it are:

Lately it seems I’ve been into an “elements” theme.  This image is a tribute to Waters, entitled by the Sanskrit word “Sindhu”.  I used three different photos to compile this image in Photoshop.  They are public domain photos kindly shared with the world at PD Photos, and are created (to start with, anyway) using the Photoshop technique so kindly explained at Earth Mandalas.  And of course prints are available at our Zazzle Store.

And these are the three photos I used:
