„Hidden in Plain View Mandala“

from the gallery of themandalalady

On occasion I participate in EBSQ's monthly online art shows (of which I'm a juried member). The theme for the February 2009 show was: "One Word Concept: Hidden". The idea "hidden in plain view" came to mind. I love playing around with words. I outlined the "hidden" word and then randomly doodled large wavy lines around and through it.

The overall painting was done with five prismacolor pencils: canary yellow, scarlet lake, true blue, diox. purple and black cherry. Each section was outlined with coordinating prismacolor verithin pencils. The whole painting was done on the back of a round matte cut-out.

When I have this painting on display at shows, it tends to be the crowd favorite.
