This freehand zentangle was meaningful as it did help to center me. I would pause trying to balance the lights and darks. Maybe it was better just in black and white, but this is what I've produced as a finished project. It measures about 4.5 inches.
I have a series of mandalas that are on 10" paper and each is seven inches.
Think that it is time to go back and create some more.
My philosophy with quilting is that each quilt prepares you for the next.
Certainly that holds true for each drawing and/or mandala.
