Fall Leaf MandalaOctober 20, 2014

I went out walking in the woods recently and was amazed by all the different colors of the leaves. As I walked I started to pick up some of the leaves that I thought had the most intense saturated color. It wasn’t long before I had a whole fistful of leaves. I didn’t really want to take them home so I created a leaf mandala on the ground. Of course I am aware of Andy Goldsworthy artwork and have always loved his work and method of working. So with him in mind I created a much smaller and less complicated piece inspired by his work. I love the fact that all of his work is site specific and only uses the materials that he finds on the site. I have done this many times before – just going out into the woods and creating some small artwork by just using the materials around me in the forest.
