*Mandala means center, circle, container and essence in Sanskrit. They are circular sacred images used in many cultures and spiritual traditions to help the viewer experience the infinite. They bring beauty, healing, inspiration and peace to those who view them.

Linda explains the inspiration and process of creating these paintings, " Flowers are my passion and my life. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and have created art most of my life. Fifteen years ago I put down my paint brush to devote full time to designing gardens. Recently I could no longer live without creating art.   I wanted to create images that came from my imagination but were inspired by the amazing details and colors of flowers, my many years practicing meditation, and the joy and challenge of watercolor.  I spent months sketching and doodling and found that all my designs were fantasy flowers in the mandala* shape.  The pencil sketches called out for the spontaneity and the unknown interaction of flowing vivid watercolors.  

I begin each painting with a meditation that inspires a quick sketch of the shapes and forms.  I then transfer that sketch onto a large 300 lb. watercolor paper square.  I find the center point and draw the shapes free hand so they fit within the implied circular format.  I paint with the paper flat on the floor so large areas can be saturated with water and color.
