Wheel within a Wheel 116 is complete following the adjustments I outlined in my prior post.   The new design elaborated further on an initial composition (see prior image below) that I had pictured in my “mind’s eye.”


Currently, I am painting a design inspired by my study of roses for my meditation garden.  The image itself works with geometries that have a universal appeal.  In my reading for the painting, I found that a meditative quality is evident in its application as found in Mandalas and in the rosette windows of Gothic churches.


I’ll write further updates on the painting’s development in my next post.
