Bowie_Mandala

 Here is a kind of collaborative mandala between the bride and groom to be / Jessica Davison, Sean Rutherford and myself the artist.  I'll start at the top and work clockwise.  At the 12 o'clock position there is a city dove, representing Baltimore our collective home.  Then we have a red peony.  We have a brown bear (Sean's spirit animal) at the 3 o'clock position.  There are some white lisianthus at the bottom right.  At the bottom we have Bowie the bunny and family pet who is a breed of rabbit called a Holland Lop.  On the bottom left is a white peony.  At the 9 o'clock position is a river otter (Jessica's spirit animal).  Top left is some astilbe.  The piece is painted on what was an old reading table I picked up at a yard sale, so technically the painting is acrylic on panel with some gold leaf foil.  Congratulations Jess and Sean. 
 Here's a detail of the goods.
 Check out those otter whiskers.
That bunny is cute.
