invention of wings 001

I am having a lot of technical difficulties with my old laptop so my posting and response to comments may be a little sporadic. I would like to apologize for that in advance. And also for any oddities in the post itself. I’m having problems with viewing the entire post which makes typing and editing tricky. Anyway, these mandalas were completed while I listened to the absolutely fabulous book The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. I noticed that the figure of the woman on the left hand page was posed so well for the addition of wings. Synchronicity. I love it. One of my favorite parts of altered book journaling.

As you can see I have continued my morning mandala practice many days. I have also been working on a series of color theory studies using 2 large mandalas that I drew for coloring. Below is a scanned version of my analogous, blue, green, yellow mandala. And I have also included a photograph of my completed purple, blue, green mandala. I have been using gel pens on them and they don’t scan very well so I’m playing with photographing them and scanning them.

Here is a close up of the little black and white mandala from the left page.


And here are the color studies
