a glorious & beautiful vision, and congratulations on 600! Mandi, I've kept thinking I would get past the interruptions of my life and be back here regularly one day, but it's getting harder & harder to do that. With galleries like yours, my time here is a deep journey, and while I've seen everything---I view as soon as I get the ebots---sitting & sharing with you here is another level of experience, and it kills me that I can't do it all the time as it's a journey to another place...All I can say is, I've seen them all, had deep responses to them all, and in the coming days, I'll comment on a selection. But I wanted to come to this one tonight because it's 600, and that's an excuse to celebrate one of the great galleries here. The image begins (atop) with a big beautiful lion's face, it moves its way through totem-esque images, scarabs and other holy insects, birds, plants and other animals, with something almost resembling an elephant; and it ends in a "third eye" image at bottom, all encased in your typically organic growing undulating "blend" (what a word, lol, as if it comes in a packet and you just 'mix') (Mandi Blend! Add water and you too can have your own mythic bas relief!) of organic forms and organisms swimming around. And it's all contained in your usual sense of gravity & cohesion. And, though it has but a few hues, you still create the sense of a complete world with those hues. It all feels like a ceremonial bas relief, something carved in ancient days, and part of a great structure of which we see but a segment. A genuine Mandi piece, and a reminder after being offline for almost 2 months, that this place is one of the great reasons I come here. You're a wonderful artist, and you create visions, and I wish you many many more. I'll be back soon. Happy meteorological spring! (March). Apparently weather-systems don't care about equinoxes & solstices: It's supposed to start March 1st. I hope things are thawing where you are!
