Donna's Mandala

Donna with her new mandala
This is Donna with her new mandala painting. I am calling it "Donna's Mandala" because it was untitled when she purchased it from me during a recent First Friday event at The Banana Factory.
Donna's Mandala - Very Beginning
I'd started this piece sometime around June of last year (2012) when I was still in studio #249  - right around the corner from where I am now. Notice that I was playing with the same colors as in the piece with the three girls.

I had no real intentions, just me and a palette knife.

I decide to do my trademark white details over black and I declare it finished. Donna's Mandala
The off-center mandala. I've noticed that people seem to comment more on the off-center pieces than the ones I "try" and center. I wonder why?

This piece had been included in a recent exhibition called "Impromptu" in the Hallway to the Arts on the 1st floor of the Banana Factory. That's also my piece on the right.
