Butterfly Dreamtime

Here is the latest completion.
I have always felt a deep connection with Australian Aboriginal art and having a love for painting eye crossing detail, it's no wonder!:)
On this piece, I was looking to meld the mandala art with a twist of Aboriginal. It didn't go at all as planned but I am pleased with the results. I think I want to try larger scale with this style.


I do love your work, Kaia. My mind has a hard time accepting this as a 6x6 painting...I keep seeing it as a painted silk for a scarf or shawl.

Thank you so much, Carol! When my mother saw this she was convinced I should go a bigger size with this style. I think I might give that a try. I could see this as a fabric design as well♥♥
This is amazing... so intricate... I can see why you said it was eye-crossing... but it is lovely.

I know nothing about Australian Aboriginal art but it almost reminds me of paintings some of my artists friends do called Mandelas.

Yes Marian! I was actually combining the Mandala with Australian Aboriginal in this one. Thank you!
