The conversations with visitors (and other artists) about life and art ARE the Studio Tour. Like giving encouragement to a woman to just jump in and make mandalas (after she asked me if I taught mandala classes). We all have hesitated, at times, to break out of old concepts and restrictions, especially when it comes to creating something entirely new.
So I will listen to my own words and make mandalas in new and freeing ways, breaking out of my old patterned grooves after 25 years of making mandalas. I have no idea how it will come about or what will show up, and that’s the point. We are living in an atmosphere totally new to our life here on this planet. It is permeating everything.
