Hands That Do No Harm

The last group of artists worked on Mandala pieces, either on paper or silk, that addressed the ways in which they intend to use their own hands to do no harm as they interface with nature.


  1. The work you do with the children is wonderful!
    (naturally I thought the bird sculptures were exceptional..) I taught elementary art for a few years, the freshness, spontaneity and the bright colors was something to admire and emulate.

  2. I just love the theme Hands That Do No Harm. These mandalas are beautiful. Wish I could hear the stories that accompany them.

  3. Merci-
    Thanks for your sweet comment on my site, I appreciate it very much and am happy that you found your way over and will help with getting others interested in chemo angels. Maybe your kids would be interested in participating and can shower someone with beautiful art.

    I admire your service in the hospice care field as it is a difficult process to watch happen and takes a special person to be able to provide support to those going through this.

    I have added myself as a follower of your blog and will stop by again from time to time to see what you're up to.

    I also visited your gallery site and love your work. The book that your wrote with the prayers, how did you go about getting that published as I am thinking about possibly creating a childrens book with publishing in mind. Please let me know.

    Blessings of Joy and Peace today and always,

  4. Thanks Indigomar and earthmother I so appreciate you both taking the time to comment on this wonderful visiting artist experience. earthmother the stories are wonderful, these are such thoughtful and articulate children...pure delight to be with and be inspired by. I love your idea of adding the stories too, THANKS!

    Leslie thank you for your kind words and back atcha'. Continue to 'work with' the angels and your book idea will grow and then it will gently lift off and fly out into the world.

    I have had that experience: My hospice book had an angel supporter who actually suggested that I take my poems and pair them with my paintings in book form. I took it on as a studio project and worked on it for a solid year. When I had completed the whole project she really surprised me and offered to publish it through her company Natural Press (which she has since sold).
    Like someone very wise has said, "We must do the thing we think we cannot do."
    So keep going you have something so wonderful to share... :-)


Thanks for stopping '-)
