Bridge Versions

MSB drew and painted many versions of a bridge composed of stars, surrounded by dark rocks in the foreground. These boulders represented the unconscious mind. She would often place a small figure on or near one of the rocks - her "creative spirit."

The Temple Where the Streams Meet

MSB called this mandala "The Temple Where the Streams Meet." She wrote about the process: "About half way through it I discovered that it had a great deal of connection with Kubla Khan. It is nearly done, and just now I am sick of the sight of it. Still I feel better for having done it in spite of my disappointment in it – a month from now I may not think it is as bad as I do at present." It's a beautiful painting of course, but she could never acknowledge her own gift.
