radiant lightRadiant Light Mandala - (Circles of Light series) - © 2007 Sue O'Kieffe

Tuesday afternoon I received email from my business counselor that he was trying to arrange a meeting with a professional printer to talk with me about my printing concerns. So I decided to postpone taking in anymore information until after I talked with him.

The one thing I am definitely questioning, though, is the need to use archival ink for printing these cards. Hellooooo answer, I'm still looking for you! Am I getting warmer?

With this image, I started a new series of mandalas. My art, at its core, is about the Light piercing the darkness. My intent is to find new ways to let the Light shine through !

Sue your work takes my breath away! The light really does shine through in your mandalas, a goal which is also very close to my heart.

Thanks for turning me on to feedblitz BTW, so much simpler!

Hi Sue,

(By the way, Francesca, I can see that light is important to you too - from your work) (Tonight in my blog I quoted Sue and well ... here is the link if you want to check it out http://www.dianeclancy.com/blog/2007/06/29/light-in-art/).

Back to this incredible mandala. Perhaps you do not need archival ink for your cards. Certainly many artists do not use archival inks. It's a bit of a bummer ... cards are expected to be not too expensive because they are seen as throw-away items. Yet cards like yours and mine are great for framing and keeping and keeping ...

So, does this mean you are waiting to work with Andrew?

Please keep us informed about your process here .. I am glad you are going to talk with a pro printer.

By the way, I love the way your mandalas ARE light piercing the darkness!

Sue, your creations are so exquisite that they really cannot be classified except to say that the spirit of creation shines through it...
