St. Patrick’s day mandala painting by Elspeth McLean

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Irish blessing.

According to the artist, she uses color as a way to express herself and celebrate the colors of her soul and spirit. In addition, she hopes that her artwork can encourage others to do the same. Besides, the artist believes that the use of dots and circles in her artwork come not only from a space of meditation but also because circle is the symbol of unity and infinity.
