In my Dream of Four Circles, my attention was especially drawn to the outside of the configuration, and the inside became obscured. This resulted in a quatrefoil with lines radiating from the four cusps.

In my previous mandala drawing, I drew bands of color around the outside of the four circle figure to reflect my sense that the outside of the figure should be emphasized. However, the inside of the figure, the four mandorlas and the portions of the lines which bisect them were represented.

On October 1, 1996 I drew another mandala which also incorporates the images from my mandala dreams of 1988-1996. In this image, however, I left the interior of the quatrefoil blank, reflecting my sense in the dream that the interior portion was meant to remain undisclosed.
