Small bit of mandalas!

I’m still spending time playing with mandalas, these three new small mandalas have been delivered and hung in the gift shop at Sugar Creek Art Center, located in Thorntown, Indiana. I am enjoying creating these with the addition of a watercolor background and really like the off-center composition too! Although I loved creating the more traditionally composed pieces, for me this just seems to make the final image a bit more interesting. What do you think?

Somehow in the midst of creation I failed to get an image of them before any color was added…so just use your imagination, tuned to black & white. 🙂 Here they are after a layer of watercolor was added to them.

The paint dulls the outlines so several of them have been traced over to get them back to their original bold black. I picked up some cool little frames the other day, which was my inspiration for creating these tiny pieces. Come to find out they weren’t quite tiny enough, I had to trim them down to fit in the frames!

You can see the size difference in this image vs. the one at the top of the page. Here are the other two pieces in their frames:

They will fill a small space with a nice splash of color, or hang all three together in a slightly larger space for a fun display! Of course I’d be happy to create some for you in custom colors as well – what colors will you choose?

    I really like the Mandalas framed like this with just parts showing. More interesting than showing the whole thing.
