Unfinished Business...

The other day I was packing up some of my art stuff and came across this little unfinished piece... it was the second mandala I had ever created.  I got frustrated with it and gave up.  One of the spirals was messed up (reversed from the rest) and the grey "swishy" thingy in the background became a mess that I didn't have a clue what to do with.  So I gave up on it, put it aside and forgot about it.  Well two years later, I am finally inspired to do something with it.  There's potential and I think it can be fixed no that I have a little more "know how" under my belt... it's not so bad!

I hope to show you some progress on this little neglected piece in the near future as I plan on using it to take breaks from the other two LARGE pieces I am working on...I think it might be a little diamond in the rough... you never know, we'll see! ;)

Off to work on the triptych again for a bit and call it a night :)


  1. I like this. The swirls look like they are progressing from simple to more complex as it goes around. Very nice.

  2. I can see potential in this mandala Cindy. The two opposing directions of the swirls remind me of yin and yang energies. I can't wait to see how it progresses.

  3. Thanks for the comments on the swirl guys! Both ideas I actually never thought of and I will definitely play with them now that you mentioned it! Thanks for the added inspiration! :)
