I decided to add some line and circles to the birthday mandala. I like it better this way.
I used a Pigma micron 01, and a Sanford uni ball gel pen in gold. Very easy to carry with me, as I didn't need my paints to make it beautiful! The Canson mixed media 9X12 spiral works just great for this.
This mandala is for my sister who is celebrating her birthday in Heaven. I miss her, and know how she loved her flowers in her yard. She use to sit out in the yard in the evening to see the flower that only blooms at night! I used Daniel Smith paints for this one.
Poppy time is just about over for this year. They were very plentiful, especially in Old Town where the people let them propagate from year to year. Some yards were completely full; beautiful! The plein air painters are up and down the street today capturing memories.
