My Vision of Peace
This piece is dedicated to world peace. The images are symbolic of unity in religion and spirituality for the purposes of bringing peace to the world. The Mandalas are symbolic manifestation of our energies. The mandala over the woman praying represents the individual and the one over the candles is symbolic of the collective. In unity and prayer peace is possible through one person and the collective. One person can inspire many to peace and the collective can bring peace about faster. Either way, this peace shows symbolically how one person can make the difference not matter their religion of spiritual faith by the simple act of sincere prayer.


Medium
The painting was created mainly in oil. I started with a very thin acrylic base as the under painting and sketched the main images. I transferred the mandala images with pencil and transfer paper. The painting was completed by using several thin layers of oil paint and saworaski crystals are used to embellish her jewelry.
