"A Kaleidoscopic..."

...Perspective!
"Creativity
is a lot like looking at the world through a kaleidoscope.
You look at a set of elements,
the same ones everyone else sees,
but
then reassemble those floating bits and pieces
into an enticing new possibility."
~Rosabeth Moss Kanter

Have delightfully kaleidoscopic Cactus Monday All!

This is very cool. I love the design. I think it's really cool that you pair the drawing with a quote

This kaleidoscopic mandala is beautiful. I think this quote represents the best way I would describe your art. You take ordinary things we look at and make them the beautiful works of art.

Oh how delightful a floral design. Love the little pen 'v's around the edge. Something so simple but finishes off the whole effect. It puts my latest floral effort to shame which I am about to post. Hope you liked my 'plug' in my previous post - not that you need it. Hope a lot more bloggers join you in this venture.

Clever and creative!
It's also the top view of a cactus.

I am so in love with your kaleidoscopic cactus Margaret!
Love this cute colourful new blossom as the focus point.

One of the (many) things I love and admire about your symetrical pieces is that you "shake it up" by not making the colors uniform...like the blooms for instance. You're an artistic genius! Most people would have make all the blossoms the same color.
Happy kaleidoscopic, psychedelic Cactus Monday!!
