Pursuing Elusive Peace Mandala (Encaustic on Cork) 


This piece was inspired by mandalas.  Mandala is a Sanskrit word for completion or wholeness, much like the Hebrew word shalom, which also conveys the understanding of peace, balance, and wholeness.  Mandalas are tools for prayer and connecting with our Creative Source.  Here you have an intentionally wonky mandala.  Peace is elusive.  Balance and true peace is never maintained, but is part of the ebb and flow of life that comes and goes, like living life on a teeter totter.
