"Sunrise...Sunset..."


...Cactus Mandalas.

I have become addicted.
I cannot help myself.
Everytime I design one of these...
I feel the digital "NEED"...
These "negative" color flips become an anxious anticipation...
A sensual addiction worse than dark chocolate...
Okay,
Not worse than dark chocolate...but verrry, very close.
Think it's time to put me into
Microsoft Digital Editor color rehab???
Funny, NOT!...
"They tried to make me go to rehab......I said No, No, No..."

Happy Cactus Monday All!
May your sunrises and sunsets today be glorious!

And...
Triple Happy Birthday Wishes Today to...
Lexi...in Illinois, who is 5 today,
and to
Joya and Jillian, in Arizona, both turning 6!
WooHoo! :)

Your colors are GLORIOUS, as are your designs!! I STILL can see these as trivets or tile -- wouldn't they look cool on tile and placed randomly in a backsplash? Would make an award-winning Southwestern kitchen!!

Wonderfully colored mandala! I can certainly understand the digital editor addiction - like looking through a kaleidoscope, but a lot better!

Deb said...

Wow... how beautiful and vivid!

The mandala looks cool in its first incarnation, but the negative version looks like a batik! Gorgeous effect!

I went through a total mania, at one time, for putting my drawings and photos into negative. The results are so unexpected.

Starting a new blog as colleagues at work found my old one, and felt this limited my freedom of expression.
Please don't mention FY on my new one.

Hope to see you there!

These mandalas are incredibly original. I really love the way you have incorporated spirituality and botanical art here.
