I must say this is definitely the most "hippity dippity" mandala I've ever created! =D Lots of peace, love and good things happening in there! Even the lettering took on a sort of 70's feeling - totally unintentional but I liked it. I really wasn't sure about putting words in a mandala but I wanted to convey a positive message ;) I thought a little experimentation couldn't hurt and I think it worked out for the best... :)
My favourite part ended up being the texture created with the little spirals in the red (below). I love the resulting shading effect!

Mixed Media on Wood
And voila! The finished piece...I'm now off to start my next painting... not sure what it's gonna be but I'm in the mood to draw "dragons"... we'll see where that takes me! :)
Have a great week everyone!
