Bardo Babes Series

Original Artwork by Eileen Mahowald

February 17  – May 14, 2022

I have enjoyed thirty years of domestic endeavors with my husband and three children as we cultivate the joy and appreciation of ordinary lives.

I am a Buddist meditation practioner and study the dharma. A painter who hadn’t painted in twenty-two years while rearing my children. As I dove back into Art three years ago my favorite subjects as always are people and living beings captured with the expressive quality in moments of space and time.

Double Quotes

May the enjoyment of the imagination be like Lucid Dream Yoga where the viewer gets to choose the narrative that resonates for them.

-Eileen Mahowald

With an emphasis on portrait and the figure as primary subject as they relate with humility and the human experience of sacred endeavor and being.

Transformation of subconscious gossip to meditative mindful ways of being through stillness and mind training. Depiction of every day situations become fertile with imaginative conjuring that plays in our ever present flow of mindstream.. Capturing moments of transition such as the Bardos of dharma. Our moments of awe and reflection, memories and surprise. The ever changing nature of life. Moment to moment and the in betweens of the Bardo. A spiritual practice of appreciation for reality in the phenomenal world. Life as it is and open to change of the ever present familial and ephemeral quality of divine, sacred and regular as the kitchen sink.   

Experiences captured and composed with whimsy, humor, tenderness and fearlessness of basic goodness and a touch of irony. Rich with Tibetan symbolism and references for transformation and workability with Angels and Protectors of the dharma. Permission to “Just Be” and the cultivation of Compassion for All sentient beings. May whatever merit that comes from this work go toward the enlightenment of All beings. With an emphasis on portrait and the figure as primary subject as they relate with humility and the human experience of sacred endeavor and being.
