Maskwa goes Métis for spring

I have always drawn in my note books.  I used to use pen and make endless mandalas made out of tiny things.  I did this cause I can't draw. I can make small marks on a page and I can add those together and it can become something that is beautiful, even thought it is not drawing.  I have been playing with the Ojibwa shapes of animals and I notice that I have brought in my little marks to this style which made me think.  Firstly, I think the little marks are a great metaphor for our lives and our relationships with others and a path to progress for lots of things.  Second, the little marks seem very Métis to me with all sorts of different coming together to make something more.
