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.

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.
