Pysanky, Coffee Mandalas, etc.

Artist's Statement:

Still recovering from a degree in Art History. After decades of vague praise for "serious" work, and gushing approval of doodles, I began to catch on. My best work so far seems to be when the work has a repetitive design that allows for meditative process, such as Pysanky ("Ukrainian Eggs") or Mandalas made with coffee.
