The one on top was done for a friend who is living with cancer and has recently had to have more radiation treatments. The bottom one is just a small one, made to fit in a 5"x5" frame I found at Michael's. I just seem to have an endless supply of these mandalas inside me. Sometimes when I sit down I have a plan and sometimes I don't. And even when I DO have a plan it generally ends up going off in some other direction!! I love seeing how they have evolved since I first started doing these about 2 yrs. ago.
I had the idea to try doing a mandala in white ink on black paper.......that's it......just white. So I drew this one, and I was pretty happy with it. I thought it was kind of "lacey" looking. BUT......I LOVE COLOR!! And I couldn't resist adding some! So here is the result. Maybe NEXT time......but I doubt it. I just can't resist color!!
