This is the latest of the mandalic inspired T- shirt designs. This one might be my favorite. Each ring of pictographs is well defined with shape and color and gives the illusion of movement. If you stare at it long enough some of the white symbols seem to sparkle. The blue, white, pink and grey color combination helps to create order and radiates off the black background. Sometime in the near future when I find the time I will put this design on a T-shirt and possibly encircle it with type then post it into the TikiTimes design shop.
While I'm contemplating my next painting I thought I would post some inspiration material. Last week I was in Miami directing a photoshoot and had an opportunity to take a ride down US 1 and see what I might discover. With just a few hours before I needed to be at the airport I hopped into a rental car and tried to see how far down the Keys I could get before I had to come back and make my plane. I made it as far as Long Key State Park. I only had about twenty minutes in the park to explore and take some photos. I was running around the park frantically looking for anything that could inspire my next painting. I shot about 100 photos in that twenty minutes and some of them actually turned out pretty good. I have to say the park was gorgeous and worth every second it took to drive down. There were beautiful shots everywhere I turned. I wish I had the time to really finesse or make sure I was getting good shots it was literally point click and move on. I did manage to take a few good pictures and some of them may even end up in a painting. You can see the best of the lot here
. Hopefully I will have another chance at exploring this area of Florida soon I really love it.
