QUARANTINE BACKYARD MANDALAS

The Quarantine Backyard Mandala series are created in my backyard and woodlands in northern NJ during the Covid-19 pandemic.  The genesis of the mixed media prints comes from placing my paintings, drawings and mixed media works with nature in situ and photographing them together.  The essential elements are color, movement and light. In the final stage I hand color archival prints with pastels, ink and metallic paints. Whether the patterns are extreme or sublime, I want the compositions to give pause for beauty, wellness and unity.
