When I have an idea, I have to run with it. And that's exactly what I did! After I started making the mandalas out of candy, I thought- I want to do this with EVERYTHING!! Yes!!!!!
And then I thought I should probably narrow that down. A bit. Ideas kept coming and I really wasn't sure where to go.
Inspiration came from a comment my photographer, Robert Sargent , made when photographing one of my mandalas- "You're really bringing out my addictions here."
Hmmm.... a series of mandalas on addictions/addictive behaviors! Lots of possibilities! Bring the light to the dark! Merge them... play with the sacred and the profane.
And of course, I had to start with the one I thought would be most fun- SEX!! And what better way to depict this than through TOYS!
A wonderful local store and staff allowed me to come in and open so many packages and create this mandala out of all of these --- things.
So, here's the first in a series. Not sure exactly where it will lead, but it's starting!
What do you think??
