Mandala Mixed Media Canvas

I DID IT. I ust went for it on a real canvas. The canvas I had always feared as a true artists' background. The canvas that inspires so much respect. Being my first, I really like it. The colors turned out beautifully. Amazing what can be accomplished with layers of paper, tissue paper, gesso and acylics watered down and played around with with your fingers and lots of LOVE. Ofcourse there was an inspiring artist behind its creation, the talented Anahata Katkin who actually has workshops on Mandala collages.

I feel new possibilities emerging. I had been wanting a quantum leap and I needed to be brave.

IT CAN BE DONE. Just like in the movie Ratatouille, anybody can become a great cook once you learn the techniques, anyone can delve into the realm of art and create beauty.

I am so happy, so excited at the possibilities opening up to me.

I love your mandala! I just took a class from Anahata not too long ago and it was such a freeing experience. I had never experimented with mandalas before. It was such a meditative experience, too.
