On one of my easels rests this painting still unfinished. In this state the art is meditation that quiets my mind as I make it come alive. I lose myself in the rolling hills of drapery. I push, pull, plunge and pet.  I'm in a creative trance in my sacred space. This is my mandala. 


  1. Jay your work is amazing! You have to be such a warm gentile person to paint with such sensitivity.

    Did you realize that a painting of the entire photo you posted, would make an interesting painting as well? Its a cool composition with the wild colored blocks in contrast with the b/w looking canvas. Even the warm tone of your easel works well...

    Must be why you didn't crop it to post it.

  2. one day i will have one of these above my bed.
