THE JOYFUL JEWEL -  local art fresh from the heart

Featured Artist for November:   Bruce Saunders Mandala Art

My work is a spectrum from the symmetrical to the abstract to the surreal.   My mandalas can be used in meditation or as decoration.  I also make symmetrical,abstract or surreal art to see other possibilities or dimensions of being.
