I am billing today’s mandala as “interactive” suggesting that viewing enjoyment may result from tilting your head twenty degrees to the left. I don’t know what happened…a foundational flaw in the design, I presume. The magic of the mandalas is that no matter what I do, the mandala can make it right, but not this time. I began to see it as the piece progressed, but during the “31 paintings in 31 days challenge”, there is not time to begin again. This is a great opportunity for me to duel with my perfectionist nature. It is said that “perfection is the enemy of the good”. I agree and feel victorious about finishing and posting this mandala that is less than perfect but, well, good.
