Explosions of Light Mandala - (Circle of Light series) - © Sue O'Kieffe 2007
Yesterday Diane Clancy made the comment that I work in values rather than in color. I replied that I work the colors Nature gives me. I don't very often adjust color in my work much further one way or the other from its origin, although I am interested in learning more about color correcting my original photographs before I transform them into mandalas.
For those of you who wonder how I create my art, I must give credit to this woman, Komra Moriko, who put up her website back in '98 or so and never took it down. I looked around yesterday to make sure I wasn't infringing on any copyright restrictions. I did at one point think I saw a Creative Commons license on her site, but yesterday I didn't see it. I need to investigate this more before I go much further with my work, though I have seen plenty of other mandala makers besides me using her basic format. I have been grateful these past couple of years that she never took her website down.
