Rogue Community College Art Show

My picture entitled, "Inanna's Descent" was selected for a show at RCC entitled,
"Who Does She Think She Is?"  The openning of the show will be July 30, at 5:30 p.m. at the Higher Education Center at RCC.  A movie by the same name will be shown, followed by a discussion.  The movie addresses the creative lives of women and the challenges of juggling all the roles they have.  There are many beautiful artworks by talented women artists so I encourage you to view the show.  The show will be up at the Higher Education Center until October 1. For further information call Betsy Lewis at Art Events Production,  541-890-1453.

Mandala Card Designs

The Mandala Card Designs continue to flow out of my brain.  I just love it when the last petal is put on the design and it pulls together like magic.  The mandala designs are so fun to create with flower petals.  This form appeals to me more than landscape designs.  Back to work.

Pressed Flower Mandala Cards

I am continuing to create items for my June 19 Pressed Flower Art Sale.  Today I am focusing on cards.  I am using mostly petals and creatin designs with them.  In the above example I used alstromeria petals with a larkspur in the middle Alstromeria leaves are great to use in mandala designs because of the variations in the pedals.  Some of the leaves look like feathers.  There is something so calming about creating mandala designs and they look so beautiful as well.  If you would be interested in custom order cards, e-mail me at
Have a great day and enjoy the beauty around you.

Dinner with World Mandala Class Members

I had dinner with two World Mandala Class members, Carol Irwin and Jill Cobb.  We dined at the McCully House in Jacksonville, Or. and had a delicious halibut dinner.  We talked about how much we enjoy coloring mandalas and processing them in a group.  Jill mentioned how she likes to see what comes out of a person when they color.  Often what comes out of the inside of a person is different from what we may see on the outside.  Jill and Carol are both inspired, creative mandala artists and will be the next two designers of the free downloads on my website.  Above is the colored version of Carol's design entitled, "Pathway to the Sun".  Carol designed and colored this beautiful design which will be the free July download in my mandala store.  Jill will create the August free download design so stay tuned!!!!

Pressed Flower Light Switch Plates

I spent the day gardening in my flower beds and pots.  My cosmos are coming up nicely and look so fresh in the bright pink, dark pink and white colors.  I have them bordered with white yarrow and they lead to the front door welcoming those who come to visit.  When I finished gardening I completed two light switch plates for my arts and craft show which are little flower gardens in themselves.
