Flying Seagull Mandala Reduced

The original seagull mandala was expanded and suitable for a large poster or mural. This reduced version is better for other applications. It also shows more detail in the lower resolution web image.

Seagull Mandala 1

A friend asked me for a seagull design, and that poject evolved into this mandala set on a feather star. I am moving from Tucson back to Bangor, Maine next month; so this is my first design with an eye toward New England. It is also the first of what will be a series of bird mandalas. Think eagles, hawks, hummingbirds, and so on.

Green on Red Chile Mandala Array

I have redone my chile array to be green on red rather than red on green. That is one of the things I like about digital. It allows for the creation of different versions of designs.

Red Chile Christmas Mandala Array

I have completed the mandala array made with red & green chiles. This one features a couple of new twists in the design. The process keeps evolving. This card will celebrate smokin' hot southwestern holidays. Here in Arizona, we string and hang red chiles, put lights on our saguaro cactus, make tamales, display our luminarias, and walk around in short sleeves over the holidays.

2012 Christmas Mandala

I have completed the 2012 Christmas Mandala made with photos of red & green chiles, for a smokin' hot Southwestern theme. I used the green chiles to make the background star. The red chiles would show up better on a darker green, but I want to preserve the Christmas colors. I show you the desing again on black which shows the pattern better. This looks best as a poster. I could add rings and expand to mural size for an awesome image.

Aloe Vera Mandala

I have completed the aloe vera mandala. The mandala array is next. The aloe vera is not the most beautiful plant or flower, but it gave me some intersting shapes to work with. Hummingbirds really like the flowers in the spring.

Babaji with Om Mane Padme Hum Mantra

The title for this mandala is The Twelve Faces of Babaji. This is my first digital mandala. The original was painted in acrylics in 1995. I just revisited it by adding the ring of the Tibetan mantra Om Mane Padme Hum. I have previously used the mantra Om Namah Shivaya which is associated with Babaji, but this one is very popular; and the pairing is a natural. I have it available on Zazzle as posters, t shirts, mugs, and more.

Rocking R Rodeo Mandala 2A

I had left our this silhouette of a rodeo clown fending off an angry bull, so I have added it to this alternate version of the mandala for the sake of completion. Do you call this clowning around?

Airplane Mandala 1

To celebrate my last three birthdays, I have gone flying in this Cygnet airplane. I have designed a mandala using silhouettes of the plane. I have also designed several products on Zazzle including this t shirt. I have included a couple of whimsical photos of the plane flying into a lightening storm and a nebula. I could do this kind of thing for you with photos of your plane.

Bucking Bronco Mandala 1

I have added another rodeo mandala. This one is made with all bucking bronco images. This one will be great for t shirts.

Rodeo Mandala 2

I have created a second rodeo mandala. It is expanded with 25 silhouettes. This one could be banner size.

You can see other rodeo t shirts and products posted on my Zazzle store. This t shirt is an example of how I can customize shirts and designs. If you or a loved one are in rodeos, you can send me photos; and I can turn them into designs of your choosing complete with name. Just click on the t shirt image to see it as it appears on Zazzle with completed description and details.

Rodeo Mandala 1

I have combined 19 silhouettes of rodeo performers into a rodeo mandala. I will add other images and new mandala designs in time. This goes along with my Western themes used on other designs.
