This mandala celebrates my 100th post on this WordPress blog since I started it in mid October 2012. The beginnings of Opus Adagio can be seen in Mandala Sketchbook Drawing No.3 on my last post… https://terrylongimagery.wordpress.com/2013/06/02/mandala-sketchbook-drawing-no-3/ Part of my inspiration came from the music of Gerald Finzi. Playing Adagio Espressivo while working gave me greater clarity and insight in visualizing the final piece. Who needs drugs when there is music like this in the world… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4dJJ2O6lds One my favourite’s of Gerald Finzi is Eclogue for Piano and Strings Op.10. You can find it here… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkQbzZgwfl0&feature=endscreen Maybe you will be inspired by his music too!
