Drawing One of 100 mandalas of what the inside of my heart looks like.
My notes -
I think the mandala must be done because I cannot bring myself to draw any more on it. I am going to scan it and see if it comes out legible. And then I have been collecting all these clippings to make into a collage and now I can't figure out how I want to do the collage. The mandala feels too one dimensional and too simplistic to me, and I want the clippings to be a part of it, but I can't think of a good way to integrate them together. I had thought about tearing the mandala up and then reassembling it with the clippings in the gaps. And I might do it that way. But I am thinking that the whole thing needs some depth, a three dimensional quality of some sort, and I don't quite know how to add that into the mix too... so... anyway...
Well it scanned in just fine. The colors don't look quite the same as the real thing, the tree is actually copper colored and the sheen doesn't come thru, it isn't quite that bright, but you get the idea. It is visually interesting, but looks rather empty to me, and unfinished. I guess the inside of my heart is rather empty... unfinished even.
