Valentine Mandala

I can't share pictures yet of what I've spent most of my time creating, as they are commission pieces for a cross stitch magazine and need to be secret until they are published.  The first of the four is actually in the issue on the newsstand right now (the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Just Cross Stitch) - I've got a picture on my home page, if you want to see it.  They are mandalas for each of the seasons.

Here is a painted mandala I CAN show you.  I was thinking Valentine's Day when I set up the palette.  It is red India ink and watercolor.  (Did you know India comes in colors now?)  This is the first one I have done using a color instead of black ink.

Tracy, so fun and playful. I love the heart motif. This will be a lovely cross stitch too!

I love it...will you be translating it to cross stitch??? Hmmmmm???

Wow, even though it's PINK (blech!), I love it! Just enough purple to take away the burn - and it moves so pretty! Hypnotizing!

This is lovely Tracy. it will be very fun to see how it translates to cross-stitch. It reminds me of a fractal. I can almost see the movement of it as it evolves.
