This mandala took spent about two days to finish, including drying time as there are many layers. Water colors and a variety of wooden stamps in various color inks completed the background. The fine pens used for making the mandala and it’s designs were made using Micron Pens. I would consider this is piece of Zentangle Inspired Art considering its use of repetitive patterns. It is on 12 by 17 inch paper. It is unframed and available for sale for $149.99
In July of 2013, I flew from Florida to Lahore, Pakistan to get married there to the most wonderful man I have ever met. We are still happily married. These are some photographs that I took during that trip. Most of the photographs were taken in Lahore and also quite a few from a small village named Prince which is close to Lahore. The warm welcome we got in the village was heart warming and the children followed us where ever we went and were eager to let me take pictures of them.
Some of the places we went to in Lahore are the amazingly beautiful Badshahi Mosque, the Lahore Fort, Shalimar Gardens, the Qaid E Azam Library and the Lahore Historical Museum.
I enjoyed every moment while I was there and found the Pakistani people to be warm and friendly.
I never get tired of taking pictures of the beaches in Florida but Fort Lauderdale is especially close to my heart since this is my hometown.
I took this picture when I went on a fabulous vacation to Colorado to visit an old childhood friend that I’ve known for well over 35 years. We hadn’t seen each other in 17 years to it was awesome to meet her husband and son, see her Mom and take a whirlwind tour through Colorado that my friend Lynn had planned, to insure that I saw as much of Colorado as possible during my short stay there she was the best tour guide ever and I’ll never forget my time in Colorado
One of my favorite flowers is the orchid. The seemingly unlimited variety of colors and patterns never cease to amaze me.
This abstract acrylic on canvas was so fun to create. As usual, I used Liquitex Heavy Gel and Heavy Body paints which allowed me to create such thick, heavy texture. I used a variety of different sized brushes and pallet knives to apply the mediums. I painted this in late 2017.
