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.
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.
A thin brush adds additional elements.
Adding more details with a brush.
Pondering how to proceed.
From another angle
Waiting patiently to be finished,
I decide to do my trademark white details over black and I declare it finished.
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.
