Victory Mandala, mixed media on canvas, 8”x8”
Putting up a window sign for President Obama’s re-election was a bit of “preaching-to-the-choir” here in San Francisco. Our President received over 83% of the vote locally. Still, I proudly put up the sign. The other day it was time to take it down. It just seems like something one should save. But I have to ask, how much stuff can I save? The solution for me was obvious. Preserve the sign by using it in a piece of art. Out came the exacto knife followed by the glue. The result is the Victory Mandala. It’s not only a victory for President Obama but more, a victory for common sense, for our country and our planet. And it’s also a victory for continuing to move forward into the 21st Century.
