I recently came across Sacred Circle Mandalas by Sue O'Kieffe. She creates mandalas using her wonderful photography from nature. In a conversation we had, I wondered what a painting would look like as a mandala. These are the results. She worked with an image of my painting of Minnehaha Creek and went further by combining it with one of her own images and the results are beautiful. I think they look like Earthy Snowflakes - combining the colors of our landscape with the the winters we are so accustomed to associating Minnesota with. Please go to her site for more images and details on her process. It's well worth it. This was fun Sue, thanks!
