Full color Dharma Wheel artist's print

Available framed or unframed


The Dharma Wheel can, at times, be confused with a ship’s wheel.  After having spent considerable time learning to draw Dharma Wheels, I was disappointed the first time a viewer experienced that confusion. I thought I had made a mistake. Then, after a little consideration, I realized I had been so close to the creative process, and my own creative intent, that I hadn’t seen the most obvious translation of my artwork.

That said, from that point on, I designed every wheel so that there would be as little possibility for confusion as possible. I took control. This wheel, in particular, was created after I’d drawn more than one hundred wheels of all sizes and designs. Some are detailed and intricate. Others are simple and bold. None, until I drew this wheel, were as traditional or black and white.

After finishing the wheel, having that first viewer believe it was a ship’s wheel and giving thought to the implications, I began to embrace the confusion. The Noble Eightfold Path offers one the ability to steer one’s decisions, and therefore one’s life, in the direction of their choosing. Choices in this life effect those in the next.

An unintended but appropriate metaphor, perhaps.
