Drawing Challenge: Mandala

On my list: make a gift for an ill friend and make a mandala for the Drawing Challenge.  Serendipity!  Creating a healing mandala became the order of the day.
'Mandala for A Friend' - 7.25"x6"; acrylic and paper collage on watercolor paper
Many thanks to blogland's dear tiny woolf for the challenge of the week.  Make sure you head over to her most interesting blog where many more mandalas are whirling.

  7. Sus there are so many layered lovelies here. The colors are so delicate and I'd love to sit by you to see it in person and ask you questions. There must be symbolic meanings here galore. That is what it seems like to me in any event. I like this a lot. And there are those crosses that I adore in your work. This is an awesome creative healing mandala and I hope that your friend will be well soon. Hugs, Norma, xo
