12X12 Hand-painted Ceramic Tile in a 15x15 frame: Zen

A mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. In this embellished fluid art painting, it symbolizes wholeness. If you gaze at it long enough, you'll feel energized and invigorated. The sense of calm and zen this painting exudes is akin to a meditative experience (or an hour at the spa!).

In common use, "mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. This glittery, mixed media fluid art piece will command immediate attention no matter which room it's in. Subtle, yet strong; elegant yet powerful, this mandala will bring much joy into your abode.

The 12X12 ceramic tile has the effect of a gallery-wrapped canvas extending the flow art to the sides. The mandala pattern is hand painted and each dot has a 3-D effect to it, much better appreciated in person.

I use acrylic paints that flow uninhibitedly on ceramic tile, manipulated gently but keenly. The interaction between paints and mediums varies depending on their viscosity, the nature of the substrate and environmental factors. Most of my art work employs several different techniques of pouring, swiping, torching and embellishing. They also have generous sprinklings of love and patience.This painting has been a labor of love for me and I am sure it will be a conversation starter in your home.

 It comes framed and ready to hang. Currently on display at Red Berry Coffee Bar in downtown Los Altos.
