It has been a busy
week. I painted and framed two mandalas that I plan to put up for sale in
This will be the first time I place my work on sale and it is quite thrilling. First they need to be deemed worthy by the gallery whose tastes I really don’t know so my thrills may be slightly premature. Wait and see. I view this as a learning experience. I don’t expect success the first time out the gate and it isn’t a race anyways. At least it shouldn’t be. There is still so much to learn.
However I have not stopped there.
I painted yet three more mandalas but now the mandala making mood has stopped. The first two were quite successful but the third is rather odd.
|Halloween Cabbage Mandala. orange, green and purple with black lines. What was I thinking?|
It appears like a Halloween cabbage mandala. There is no freshness to it and I can almost smell the cabbage cooking. I don’t dislike this odd looking mandala but it does look crude and simplistic to my eyes and so I will move on to something else for the time being. I’ve accomplished my goal of having three mandalas for framing and even have a fourth so there is no reason not to try something different.
So I am back to portraits. Really I need to try a landscape sometime soon. This is something to think about, but in the future, not now.
