Every day since June 2, 2020, Carol Whitman has made botanical mandalas.

She walks through her garden and into the parkland around her home in West Marin, collecting possibilities. Some of the botanical elements also come from her plant propagating room. Daily, she returns to a round metal table to create a new mandala.

The word mandala comes from the Sanskrit for circle or completion. It’s said that the urge to make these designs happens during periods of intense personal growth. Carol maintains the practice of mandala-making to connect with the earth, to beauty, to hope, and to dampen down the despair. She’s found that photographing and sharing the images with others on social media extends this joy.

Please enjoy viewing several of these mandalas in the Dance Palace Virtual Art Gallery throughout November, and join Carol for a reception on Saturday, November 14th at 5 PM.


The reception is free, though donations to the Dance Palace are gratefully accepted (please mention this event by name in the comments section)
