Many thanks to those of you who came and took part in the dvd giveaway described in my last post: Silk Painting DVD Giveaway Recently I launched my new mandala silk painting kit and dvd. To celebrate this I decided it would be fun to give away 2 of the dvds to 2 of you lovely people who have been following my posts and giving support. I originally decided to do the draw on Saturday but held back another two … Continue reading
Over the years I have painted a great number of mandalas on silk and, as you can imagine, I have a huge collection of photographs taken both during the process and afterwards of the completed paintings. And it’s with great joy that I often browse through the photos, picking pictures out here and there to illustrate writings and newsletters. Well the latest trip down memory lane was yesterday when I pulled out my Da Vinci Code soundtrack CD and suddenly … Continue reading
Silk painting is such a joy to do and it’s even more joy when others join you in a group. And I had that pleasure at the weekend when 3 other aspiring silk painters met with me to create their own silk mandalas. We were in a venue I haven’t worked in before. Lincombe Barn is the home of the Downend Folkhouse Association, just past Bristol City limits, a few metres into South Gloucestershire. It was such a beautifully warm … Continue reading
Making an inner shift. Feeling the truth of it deep within. Seeing what was unseen before. Yet seeing everything around still reflecting the old. Staying with the knowing. Being the truth. Despite the doubts and the mind’s story telling. ….and bit by bit the outer moves into alignment. And sometimes it doesn’t….. Being the truth despite that. x
It’s been a while since I last ran a silk painting workshop. And just recently I got that prod again to put out the call and make it happen. I have always taught people within my own home, whether Glastonbury, Malahide or Bristol. But this time I knew it was time to go out and seek a new venue. So imagine my delight when within a very short space of time I had manifested 2 different spaces to hold my … Continue reading
It’s that time again and here we are, ready to take on our next challenge. But first of all, huge gratitude to all those of you who took part in the first Mantangles silk painting challenge. I’m not going to go into all the details of how this started. Suffice to say that I documented it all in some earlier posts, and so I’d love you to go and read up and see where all of this came from. So … Continue reading
It’s been quite a few weeks since I originally posted the Mantangle silk painting challenge and in the end, 5 other artists accompanied me through this one. Here is a link to the original post with the challenge – Create a Mantangle on Silk. Have a look at the video concerned so that you know what this project was all about. My thought had been to take on the challenge of creating a mandala-like piece of art but without any … Continue reading
I’m sure every one of you reading this post is already familiar with the news about the upcoming Venus Transit on June 5th/6th 2012. But I wanted to share with you a beautiful story I have around this Transit and how it links in with my mandala artwork. Just before I tell you about the painting I’d like to fill in a little of the background information surrounding the transit in case any of you don’t know. I’m not an … Continue reading
I love a good challenge and even more, I love to create a challenge and invite others to join in. And that’s exactly what this post is all about. My lovely friend Don Baker shared a link to a fabulous YouTube video today which shows Milliande Demetriou from the Milliande Art Community drawing a design called a Zendala. It was coined from a mix of mandala and zentangle. I’d love you to watch it because this is exactly what our … Continue reading
Well, not too long ago I decided to have a break from creating my traditional mandalas on silk using gold resist and dyes. I was open to exploring new directions and giving free flow to my creativity. I began to play with soya wax more and bought myself some tjantings and just literally got going. At the same time I was introduced to the world of fluorescent dyes which was a real delight. However, rather than let my active mind … Continue reading
