the 300 year-old farmhouse of artists portia munson & jared handelsman was recently featured
in new york times, and of the numerous photos shared of their live-in museum, i must admit
that the most interesting are not of their home at all-- but rather the larger than life
flower mandalas created by miss munson herself.
celebrate & elongate the short life of another living thing- the garden flower.
she decided to create mandalas: continuous rings of flowers, insects, leaves,
and occasionally dead animals freshly plucked from her garden and
artfully arranged on a digital scanner for photographic perfection.
"every flower mandala is unique to a moment in time,
represents what is in bloom on the day i made it."
and a bit tempted to go into my mother in law's garden
and see what i can come up with.
