SPRING PASSION ( Circles of Spring series) - © Sue O'Kieffe
Leptospermum (tea tree plant) is commonly used as shrubbery where I live. Sunday, on my photoshoot, I found a house with four or five different varieties in the front yard. The bright pink blossomed ones are my favorite.
I have enjoyed creating these mandalas to mark this season of rebirth and renewal. If it is true that teachers teach what they need to learn, maybe artists create what they need to experience. It is as if my soul is crying out, "C'mon, c'mon, let's go. Let's live!"
My desire as an artist is to express what is inside in ways that others relate to.
What are your thoughts? Share them with me, if you feel inspired. I'd love to hear what's on your mind.
