This is an especially beautiful post Ellen! Amazing really...all that incredible mandala work...a wonderful tribute to your teacher! Miss you! x0x0 - M


Mom--I remember when you used to draw these all the time. There was usually some chanting music playing somewhere, and you would let me play on the sheepskin rugs next to your desk in your studio while Yashi slept on that huge ridiculous red velvet couch. What a scene. I felt so safe!

Yours are the most beautiful mandalas I have ever seen. Breathtakingly beautiful! Thank you for sharing!
