Art Explorations, Experiments and Expression

Mandala Inspiration

Thanks to the wonder of photoshop and some patience and experimentation on my part,  I have been able to take some of my photos and shape them into mandala inspired art prints.   Click on each image for a larger view. 

The first four images came about through a single photo of shield lichen on a tree in our yard.

The next two images were created from a photo I had taken of a chameleon's skin. Such beautiful patters and colours!  

Images 7 & 8 were derived from a small mixed media piece I had created and photographed.

Images 9 & 10 - island evening and island morning were created from a photo of a small local "island" (it's an island when the tide is in).

Image 11 is derived from a photo of a simple watercolour experiment where I wrote "no risk no art" (quoting an art instructor at the time).
