The Downsview mandala is now complete as of November 3, 2010 !
Sometimes working 'til the wee hours of the morning, I plowed forward and reached the finish line at 1:15 a.m .
Downsview is bounded by Wilson Avenue to the south, Sheppard to the north, just west of Keele Street to the west and Wilson Heights/Allan Road to the east.
I have spent the month of October working on it and after hours of research, walking in the area and sketching, I finally came up with a design which hopefully incorporates most of the elements of Downsview , past and present. I plan to post a mini-version of it soon, along with the rest of the tribe.
Olde Toronto New is in the works, but for some reason I was called to create Downsview first of all.
Yonge/Lawrence is also moving along, with some of the research having been completed.
A recent commission is to produce a New York City mandala and I hope to have it ready by the end of November.
