This is the medicine wheel mandala, (also in my gallery), but after I added colour to make it into a colour wheel. Done with prismacolour pencils, on black paper

Your art is so beautiful, detailed and vibrant. Amazing.
Especially love this one. :)

Does anyone in Melbourne sell prismacolour pencils?

Were you a textile designer by any chance?

Hi, thanks for your feedback and lovely compliment. :) Yes, they do sell prismacolour pencils at the art shops. I usually buy them individually, because the sets are too expensive over here.
No, I'm not a textile designer, but this line of work probably would have suited me. I did experiment in silkpainting briefly, but that's about my only connection to textile design.
Nice to meet you! :) :wave:

That is a splendid use of color and demonstrates your expertise with the prismas. I love prismas.

Thanks Kath! Do you do non digital artwork as well? I found my first prismacolours years ago, while still in Canada, and have used them ever since. The colours are so brilliant, no wonder we love them. :heart:

I have done some non-digital work. I bailed out of art at age 14 and, except for doodling, did not return until age 38 when I had a breakdown after I lost a baby. During my hospitalization, I was allowed access to art therapy supplies. I made huge abstracts, using prismacolors, and that helped me so much. So, I began studying art, on my own. I seemed to gather artist friends and learned from them.

10 years later I received a grant to study at MICA and took a figure study class. That is my only formal art training to date.

So, I only do non-abstract and non-digital work to help my kids learn.

Yup, colors are brilliant ... far smarter than people.

Thanks for being so candid, and open. What an interesting story.(although I'm sure that is very much condensed) I feel like I know you a bit better now, and hope we can be good friends. I would really love to see some of your earlier more traditional work (one of these days). You sound like a very remarkable person. Someone I'd like to get to know, over time. Thanks for sharing. :heart:

I believe you are right. We could be friends. I look forward to knowing you better.

You are close... I'm a citicen of the world, ha, ha. I was born in Germany, then lived in Canada for 25 years.(from age 11 to age 36) My husband is Australian. He was living in Canada when I met him. My kids and I are Canadian. We decided to move to Australia in 1993 to escape the long winters, and for the sake of adventure. My daughter met a German boy while still in High-school. She is now married to him, and living in Berlin. It is rather confusing. I appreciate your interest. :heart:
