soft as a lambSoft as a Lamb Mandala - (Winter Series) - © Sue O'Kieffe 2008
source image - dusty miller

I don't have a lot to say about this particular image except I like it. When perusing some of my older photographs, I stumbled upon a picture of some dusty miller, one of my favorite wooly garden plants. Who can resist running their fingers on that velvety texture? I'd always wanted to create a mandala from one of those photos, and so I did. My heart and soul really needed that softness and to see that angel light emanating from the six points of the configuration.

I am still digesting the effects of AEDM. It did have a very positive impact on my growth as an artist. I have been contemplating for quite a long time how to begin to get my art out in the world in a bigger way. Having returned to work a year ago after a five year hiatus has put a bit of a damper on left brained planning activity after work, but I am beginning to take notes again about directions. Over the next few weeks don't be surprised if I muse on this topic here on my blog.

If you are interested in ordering one of my Sacred Circle Mandala Calendars, all I have to say is, well, what are you waiting for? I was looking at Lulu's shipping schedule today. is a print on demand company, so it takes 3-5 after an order is placed for it to be shipped. I ordered something today to be shipped Media Mail, and that choice is not guaranteed to be delivered by Christmas. Just so you know.

The link to the ordering page for the calendars is on the sidebar, top right. Thanks for your interest.

I have a rare bout of insomnia tonight. At 1:30 AM, I think Im finally feeling sleepy. Gonna try round three with that pillow.

Mmmm, dreaming of one as soft as a lamb. How about that?

I do love those radiant beings towards the edge... and the beautiful music to go along with it.

I love that image, Sue. Reminds me of some of the images I get with shibori and discharge!
Hugs to you.

Lovely image - the white ones remain often my favorites.

Very peaceful and uplifting.
