Mandalas


The past few days I've noticed a lot of the artist blogs I've been following have been sharing their use of mandalas to relax and get into a creative space in our minds. While I don't follow the spiritual history of these creative devices, I do find that they help provide a creative focus, mixed with some amount of logic, which is very helpful to me as a mixed right-brain-left-brain individual. With that said, here are two that I made last night and this morning, along with a digitally inverted version of each. I must say it has been a gratifying exercise, even though (as usual) my artwork is imperfect :-)
