dwelling

I  have been putting my mandalas up on the wall at work to add some color to a boring wall and it has given me  chance to ponder and dwell on each piece instead of getting my work done. I catch myself sitting and staring at each piece and as a result, I never think they're done so I have gone back to a few older ones and added more, way more....



A before photo...

An after...




Another before...

  17. Andrea, you take my breath away.
    Seriously, your work is worthy of me feeling jealous...I have to admit.
    I LOVE what you do.
    Those sharpies are great, but they run dry so quickly.
