Dreamscape Mandala - (Circle of Light series) - © Sue O'Kieffe 2007
A year ago I had a dream. In it I was visiting a cosmic library with neon purple walls. In this dream I was shown an archaic language that no one knew how to read anymore and was told I would be sharing this language in my mandala art. At the time of this dream and for a few months afterward, I explored working with images of crystals, but I was not satisfied with them when they were printed. I felt like there was a better way to produce those images so light could shine through them. I knew that if I sent out that request to the Universe that eventually the answer would come back to me. I am still waiting. Luckily, Im pretty patient.
Right now Princess Flowers (Tibouchina urvilleana),are blooming in grand profusion until the winter rains finally beats away the last of their petals. It has been one of my favorite fall plants for as long as I have lived on the North Coast of California. I love being able to share today with you the story it holds within.
