Geode by Fred Tomaselli

158 – Tomaselli Mandala

I first learned of collage/painter Fred Tomaselli while at our local library. Spotting a mandala image on the cover of a large art book entitled “Fred Tomaselli” caught my eye. I checked it out and checked it out. His art is vibrant and powerful…and so different from anything I had seen before. He uses a variety of traditional art media along with conventional materials…like photos, vegetation and even pills.

Leaves & Stones Mandala by Dietmar Voorwold

99 – Leaves & Stones Mandala

When I see images of nature-inspired mandalas, it takes my breath away. The little kid voice in me says “I wanna do that!”

And that was my reaction yet again when I found today’s MotD from photographer & land artist, Dietmar Voorwold, and his remarkable land art creations. My biggest challenge was figuring out which of his pieces to showcase…they all are spectacular.
