Crayon Garden Mandala Framed Print (14″ x 14″)


Available on backorder


When I first moved into my house on Pleasant Hill, I was at once delighted and disappointed by the landscaping.  It was dull, sparse, and…well…way too neat.  One of the first things I did was dig up a big swath of the front yard that included a perfectly manicured grassy slope down to the driveway that required hand-mowing (oh, I think not).  In that swath, I created the Crayon Garden.  It was full of bright flowers in primary and secondary colors…every hue you might expect in a brand new box of crayons.  It was a stunning sight and if I had known the maple tree I planted in the front yard would one day shade it out, the maple would probably be living in the backyard right now.  But, here’s my crayon garden reconstructed in a gorgeous and complex mandala that’s particularly suitable as a meditation piece.  If you look closely, you’ll see bamboo wands that I used to support some of the flowers.  I used them in the mandala to create additional structure and chose a frame to emphasize the strong lines that they provide in the piece.  You won’t see this mandala as a card (the detail just doesn’t translate), but here’s your chance to own it for your space.

Enjoy this piece as a high-quality 14″ x 14″ giclee print on Hahnemuhle photo rag paper, beautifully prepared in a subtlety marbled brown wood frame with acid-free, round-cut cream mat and UV acrylic glazing.  The finished size is 16″ x 16″, including the frame; big enough to allow you to dive in and really enjoy all the fine detail of the mandala.  If you plan to use or gift this mandala as a mediation piece, this is the perfect size.  A copy of the original photo and the story of the piece are included on the back.
