With this blog I plan to write about my own creations, my yarn and stick mandalas, and about all those around the world who have in the past inspired me, and who, often through facebook, continue to inspire me.
I have a few levels of writing about my artwork: my personal facebook page, the facebook group I started, Ojos de Dios, yarn mandalas of the world, a newsletter for subscribers via my Ojos-de-Dios.com website, and, in time, a planned e-book which will expand on all of the above, plus my yarn mandalas instructions which I sell on etsy.com.
More and more I’m moving away from the term “Ojos de Dios” for my work, and using the more universal “mandala.” Known in Russia simply as “mandalas,” this art form has become very popular among young Russians, largely though the work of Anna Fenina, who has held many workshops over the last several years throughout Russia and beyond.
Two years ago, during a pilgrimage to India, I introduced the art to India in a few workshops I held, and now Julia Kazarina, like Anna Fenina, also a Russian, has followed in my footsteps, and held several more workshops around India. Now yarn and stick mandalas have spread to hundreds there, and spawned it’s own teachers as well.
These will be some of the first people and events I’ll blog about. Now that I’ve gotten started, hopefully I’ll be blogging here often, and, within at least the next two years, expand it all into my planned e-book as well.
Peace and Love to all,
