I came across this beautiful sight, and made a picture. Proving once again, nothing is more complex and psychedelic than the little things, the things that mostly go unseen, created by her, mother nature.
While spending a week at the Outer Banks, North Carolina, I had become very inspired by the beach at night. All my friends would go to sleep and other people seemed to stay in, but I would grab my tripod, camera, and head out to the beach to watch the moonrise. We got lucky with the times of the moon this year, and so each night I experimented with long exposures… Here I made a self portrait with a powerful flashlight.
This is the second mandala painting made so far. I began by designing the patterns in Photoshop, taking some inspiration from traditional Tibetan mandalas and mixing in some other shapes and patterns. I then printed and transferred the design onto wood. We added some bright color paints and then hung it on the wall. Hopefully we will create many more of these soon.
