A work in progress...

Wanting to start a new project I recently organized my painting materials and had to laugh about how many paintbrushes I somehow ended up with... at least they're useful!

I was prompted to organize my painting stuff because I was looking for a protractor I had bought recently, which was nowhere to be found. I did end up finding it and definitely made use of it as I designed this mandala. Designing it was fun— I didn't have a clear goal in mind when I started making it, but just went with what felt right. I love the result.

I'm painting on a hard-backed canvas given to me by my sister Isabel this summer. I've been waiting to feel ready to tackle a big project before using it. Generally I just paint on acrylic paper and it's nice to have something more substantial!

I've been deliberating on color schemes for this mandala, since that's the next step. I haven't figured out what I want for it yet, but I'm excited to continue! Maybe I need to start a new audio book for inspiration!

  1. Can't wait for you to adventure into representational painting... you are so talented and you love it! Your own photos would be perfect for that-- like one of the photos from this post?
