Monday = Mandala!

Well, a lot of Monday posts have featured mandalas so I figured the title would work. Plus it’s getting tough to find new titles for mandala posts! 🙂 Similar the the “Sun & Earth” mandala post last week the two finished pieces I’m showing here each started as a single piece with the notion they’d be cut in two for display/framing purposes. Here is what they (plus another unfinished piece) looked like after they were drawn:

From that stage they were then given some washes of watercolor to make the backgrounds interesting. The watercolor tends to fade out/discolor the bold black lines so I re-applied many of those before heading to the final coloring stage:

Here are the two pieces, finished, before they were cut in half:

Lastly, here is the second piece in it’s matting, ready to go into it’s frame:

These two particular pieces are now hanging at Healing Arts Indy, in downtown Indianapolis. I’ve got a couple of the larger mandalas to share with you soon, then who knows what we might get into. 🙂

Have a great week!
