Pick up Trash! Make Art!

I have started a new series of mandalas called Pick up Trash! Make Art!

The mandalas gently urge others to pick up their trash and recycle. It spreads the message in a fun way without being preachy.

I talk walks around outside taking pictures of the trash, then picking it up. Some of the trash pictures are then made into mandalas. I also like to play around with the mandalas and transform them into something new and different.

Urban Mandalas and Everyday Mandalas

I like to create mandalas from photos of urban images and everyday objects. Many people associate inner peace with "peaceful settings" - forest, beaches, mountains, fields of flowers. Peaceful places are generally envisioned as areas of nature far removed from major urban areas. I feel that peace is where you find it and where you create it.

Peace can be found in city side walks, in bridges, railroad tracks, buildings, railings, statures, monuments and a thousand other bits and… Continue
