Today (8/1/9) I participated in the Corvallis Art Guild Clothesline Sale. Rather than paint today, I decided to display the mandala so that those in the area who are following this project can come view it up close.
I had a wonderful conversation with this one couple that viewed the painting (Tim & Phyllis). We talked about Escher and the exhibit that’s currently on display at the Portland Art Museum (Oregon) through Sept 13, which I highly recommend anyone in the Portland area go visit.
I told them that I had yet to determine what will be done in all the white space surrounding the mandala. Being inspired by our Escher discussion, Tim suggested I do some kind of metamorphosis band about 5-6 inches around the outside of the mandala. If you’re reading this Tim: I’m giving it serious consideration and some initial ideas are already popping into my head.
