Mandala of the Crystal Palace

2011

Metallic Gel Pen on Illustration Board



In the dream of the Universe
We are not alone

In the journey of the soul
We are not alone

Angels and demons
Brothers and sisters
Beast and plant
Cosmic brethren

We come together
In this sacred place

Peace

1. Acknowledge

We travel through space
We journey through time
We voyage in life

We explore self
We discover being

We endeavor to peace
We live in love

Peace

2. Release

We are universal citizens
On a cosmic path
Around the light
Through time

We acknowledge our brothers of the Gaia
We acknowledge our brothers of the cosmos

We are children of ONE
We are one

Know the truth within the depths of the atoms
Uniting and breaking in a blaze of form and light

Be the truth within and without
As the sacred is about

Look to the heavens
And find the temple above and below

Peace

3. Awaken

We are in the blessed halls
Awash in the glimmer of LOVE’s LIGHT

Enter the great chamber
As all creation congregates in peace

We celebrate this holy union
We celebrate our life

4. Return

The wisdom of the cosmos
Is now in but a minute shard

Blessed are its truths
Precious to all

Praise . . . share . . . and laugh
For Heaven and Earth are ONE

Your work with gel pens is incredible, and your mandala visions are evocative and true-speaking. I think I shall have to get some of these as prints!

My gratitude for the many kinds words you have posted on my works, as well as give so much praise to my collection through your "faves"

I am elated that my art has resonated to you, and as for this piece . . . it is a 24 point star, but I am planning a 36 pointed one soon

A beautiful job as always, Lakan! I like the way the colors of the star in the center kind of melt into each other, creating a rainbow gradient effect; very nice! I bow down to you, gel pen master. :worship:
:D

Thank you Holly

I have been pushing my techniques with each new work . . . kind of hard, when I am limited with only 7 colors available here

My works have been getting more complex these days, and I have been expanding on my combinations to create a larger range of tones . . . even with just those seven colors

A great blessing of prosperity to you and your family this New Year

I really don't keep count of how much pens I purchase in a year, but I do assume they are quite a lot . . . but now the budget has risen as my daughter took and shining to these pens, and some of my workshopers (in my mandala making and meditation workshops) also ask to use them :)

Salamat (thanks) at samuli (and until then),

Do you need more pens? I'm willing to buy you a whole new set. I have a set that you would just love I think. It has nearly 50 pens - glitter, metallic, gel, neon gel,...now if I could just find that set again, I'd mail it to you.

That would be interesting working with other colors. I tries some local glitter pens and was not too happy how it fell on the black surface. Plus they didn't scan very well

Thanks

Funny thing . . . almost 15 years ago I used to sneer at these metallic pens, thinking these were for kids. More or less a fad for teenagers to play with . . . then I got turned on by accident, and the rest is history :)

Years of history! The day I see a publication of your works in a physical book is the day I'm a very happy woman. You have so many different themes you will never run out of published art books.

I am trying to get to some publishers at the moment, and I am contemplating the concepts at the moment . . . will keep everyone posted on this :)

Most likely the first will be a book of prayers with mainly the mandala artworks as the theme
