Mountain mandalas take a creative look at our surroundings in Paradise Valley. Montana is appropriately nicknamed the "Big Sky" state
with sprawling mountainscapes open for study. Ruby reflections of the
sun, scintillating over the mountaintops at rise and set, never cease to inspire radiating sun
The first of these was "Prayer Flags, Paradise Valley" which portrays the skyline from the artists' studio window. While this large mandala was still in progress, "Sun Over Yellowstone", a precursor for the Mandala Shambhala logo, was completed.
