Cosmic peace

Nature is always the primary source of my inspiration for my mandalas--its many colors, detail and the cosmic scope. And that is true for this one as well. This piece (acrylic, 95 x 65 cm.) contains all of the colors I feel represent me: blue, green, pink, purple, gold and brown. The colors of peace, I hope this artwork creates an inner peace in all who view it.

Everyone asks how long it takes to create my work, but I don't count the number of hours and days, I draw because I love to draw; completion is not what I focus on. This work will be featured at my first exhibition, at the Palestine Museum and Cultural Center in Bristol, UK.
