One goal for this year is to create one mandala each month. Each time I do one, I try to push myself in technique and design. For February, I have done a colored pencil piece using the "Flower of Life" pattern. I'm a bit surprised at the secondary image and must decide if this is really finished.



Usually my pieces are 7" drawings on 10 by 10" paper. Canvas pieces are often bigger.

There just had to be a lady on the next pages in my moleskin zentangle. Here she is with her hair blowing. Color was added with colored pencils'



Have a nice day! All comments are appreciated.

Hi Sandra. Your February mandala is stunning. I really like the shading you've done with the colored pencils.

And the Zentangle lady is terrific. Hope you've submitted this to one of the Zentangle weebsites too.

The mandala is lovely, but I really love the one with the womans face. All that amazing detail work on her hair, that would look fantastic on fabric. Lovely indeed!!!!
