Mandala as Light as Air

Comments Off on Mandala as Light as Air

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:

Waters Mandala Poster

Comments Off on Waters Mandala Poster

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.

Water is a feminine energy and highly connected with the aspects of the Goddess. Used for healing, cleansing, and purification, Water is related to the West, and associated with passion and emotion.

And these are the three photos I used:

Mandala Art From Tree Bark

Comments Off on Mandala Art From Tree Bark

I love the idea of creating one thing out of another. I created two different Mandalas in Photoshop from the same simple image of tree bark that I shot while visiting family in Virginia. I took the picture because I was intrigued by the texture. And every part of the design is made up of a piece of this picture.
<br />

The first image (left)is entitled “Valka Prathamaja”. In Sanskrit, “valka” is tree bark, and “prathamaja” is “first born.”

The second image (below) is entitled “Valka Dvitiiya” — “valka” again being tree bark, and “dvitiiya” being “second after the first”.

<br /> The seed idea for creating mandalas this way came from Earth Mandalas, and I have elaborated on the ideas with layers and filters, etc. Follow that link for a great tutorial and templates for creating your own mandalas this way.

Posters and other products made from these images are available at our Zazzle Store, just click on the images.

The fun part? Showing you the image these were created from:
