I’m way behind on posting images of new mandala art projects! This is probably my favorite mandala inspired work that I’ve made lately, although it’s less mandala than most.

Finally I began to paint layers of watercolor, followed by more ink, pencil and charcoal until it was finished. Although the actual waves crashing on the rocks were breathtakingly beautiful, it was fun making a creative rendition of what I dreamed I would see.
What do you dream of?
