My new mandala series is a visual invitation to focus upon Hope, Love, Equality, Inclusion, Kindness, Justice, Equity and Peace…

These flower mandalas provide a gentle cue to meditate on the words and consider love as the essential core of being. This is a new series that I will be adding to throughout 2023.

Printed on on acid-free paper using long-lasting pigment ink and comes with a white mat and backing board. 10×10″ square mat with 5.5″ print. I will sign the print in the lower right-hand corner. Sealed inside a clear cello bag. Ready to frame. Great for gift-giving!

Mandala No. 1:
Peace, Love, Unity, Hope, and Heart.

Mandala No. 2:
Unity, Justice, Love, and Hope.

Mandala No. 3:
Hope, Love, Equality, Inclusion, Kindness, and Peace.

Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park, MD Watercolor & Signs of Justice

Just about every single time I walk by this yard on Carroll Avenue in the summer I stop and take photos of the bees, butterflies and blooms. This time, it was the colorful “We Believe” sign that caught my eye. Later as I was sketching from the photos, I realized I couldn’t see all of the words at the bottom so I searched online and found  Jameesa Oakley’s Etsy shop – SignsofJustice — ( you can order your own yard sign at the link!). They have other great signs too, so check them out!

Matted prints and note cards of my painting are available from my Etsy shop, MichelleBaileyArt.

Like the yard sign? You can get one at Signs of Justice!
