It took all of 9 hours and over 30 community volunteers to paint this 50′ diameter mandala entitled: The Eclipse Rides Through Corvallis. The Corvallis Bike Collective asked me to create a design for the upcoming Open Streets event on August 20 (the day before we experience a full total eclipse).
This mandala includes the reference to the eclipse in the center with two styles of bike gear wheels forming concentric circles around it.
It was truly amazing to be part of this fantastic community as we progressed through this colossal painting with temperatures rising up into the 90’s by mid day. Everyone helped each other and gave it their best. I would gladly do another one … in a heartbeat!
