In 2007, I began a series I titled Contemplation.  These images were quickly referred to as mandalas, and they certainly are mandala like.  I discovered how much I love working in the format of a circle within a square, and I have now completed Contemplation Series Six.  I especially enjoy the exploration of color and design within this format.
