Great Round of Mandala - Stage Five

Stage Five: Claiming Selfhood

Not as prolific as I had been, I admit, yet I like these the best so far.  

Stage Six will be harder yet and I don't know how many exercises I'll be able to do.   Summer has hit hard and I've been driven into the house with all my fragile art supplies.  I'm feeling hemmed in and "blessed" with cat butts sitting on my page while I'm trying to art.  

Anyway, this class has been wonderful and I'll see what materializes from the next chapter.

As Promised: Sunflowers Part 2

The first two were hard to get to for some decent pictures as I had to stand on the tire and hold my phone up over my head.  Tall beauties these!  AND bonus - they have blooms and buds most of the way down the stem!

This last one is a smaller but sweet baby in the lower shadows of the tall varieties.  I had to hold a couple of leaves aside for this picture.

So, summer is here in Phoenix.  109 degrees again today.  This is my claustrophobic time of year as I go from air conditioned house to air conditioned truck to air conditioned office and back home the same way.
