Milkweed Mystery Mandala Framed Print (9″ x 11″)

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


I took the photo that served as this basis of Milkweed Mystery while on an excursion with my mom at the West Virginia Botanic Garden, one ridge over from my home on Pleasant Hill. Mom was taken by the strong lines in the cluster of common milkweed buds that she found along the road into the gardens and pointed out the photo op. This became one of my mysterious, deep pieces in deference to Mom’s taste in mandala art.

The buds reminded me of tightly clenched fists hiding treasures with, prompting me to write the poem, Fingers Uncurl, to address the untapped potential and beauty that we sometimes hold tightly back from the world.

Enjoy this piece as a high-quality giclee print on Hahnemuhle photo rag paper, beautifully prepared in a slightly ornate bronzed wood frame with acid-free cream mat and UV acrylic glazing.  The finished size is 9″ x 11″, including the frame, perfect for filling an intimate wall space or for displaying in a table-top stand.  A copy of the original photo and the story of the piece are included on the back.

Linda Gribko is an avid gardener, naturalist, author, artist, and photographer living just outside Morgantown, West Virginia, on a one-acre property she calls Yellow Bird's Rest. She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
