Sunflower mandala card with a joy affirmation is perfect for anyone living on the happy side of life. This 5" x 7" folded card is digitally printed using the highest quality pigment inks on silky, bright white, acid-free paper. It comes with a beautifully made, bright white envelope. The photograph I used to create the mandala is printed on the back of the card with the photo location and a special wish for the recipient. Interior of the card is blank and the paper is super smooth, not slick, and takes gel, ballpoint, and other inks well. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.
Framing. This card is created using high-quality materials, such as might be used in a museum. The print is sharp, bright, and frameable. To protect the vibrancy of the artwork, I frame using UV glass or acrylic, and I recommend it. If you use plain glass or acrylic, make sure you hang this sweet, little piece and all your beautiful art away from direct sunlight.
About the Art. I created the mandala on this card, titled Ephemeral Joy, using a photo of a sunflower that volunteered to grow amongst my Brussels sprouts. Yellow, especially this strong shade of gold, is usually associated with joy; however, as I worked this piece, I felt the joy here was just a bit subdued. The low lighting when I shot the photo had desaturated and flattened the exuberant gold, dulling ever so slightly the happy edge. As I continued working the piece, the petals of the flower became more and more tissue-like and layered. This brought to mind the ephemeral quality of joy... it pops up, it fleets, it dodges, it evaporates, only to pop up again, dance around us, and disappear once again. I’ve decided that’s fine with me, though, as the contrast between the joyous moments and the not so much makes the happy moments of life that much sweeter.
