Photos just can't do this piece justice. This mandala is *exploding* with color and energy. Created over a period of a year and a half, it started as a watercolor piece that sat until it was ready to be combined with numerous additional layers of colors and details. The center mandala "petals" are coated with gloss medium which give them additional shine and *pop*. Colored pencil petroglyphs blend into the background layers while the foreground just leaps off the page.
"Big Bright Breath" is a mixed media piece. Created on 9 1/2 x 11 1/2" Clairefontaine Acrylic fine art paper, I used artist grade watercolors and acrylic paints, colored pencils and white gel pen. It is signed on the front and is ready for you to frame or mat.
