Mandala from Creative Astrology course

Well, here it is - I finally uploaded it to Flickr, was able to rotate the picture there and then blog it from Flickr.  A round about way of doing things, but I simply could not get the picture to load correctly in Blogger.  Even in Flickr, I had to correct the upload.  

Anyway, this is what I created as a result of Ariel's wonderful course - people are still working on theirs and haven't uploaded them yet.  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's creations!

This is basically my astrological chart with visual elements of my choosing, rather than astrological symbols.  I don't understand working on a flat piece of surface - like drawing, painting, etc - and just had to add some texture to it.  As you can see, I like lots of textures, colors and visuals - they keep me interested in viewing any object. 

I wanted to show some of the details with this, but I can't figure out how to blog several photos from Flickr.  I guess I'll have individual posts with their images. 

Clicking on the picture will take you to my Flickr page.

It's beautiful! Honestly there's so much to see and drink in, I don't even know where to start but I can't stop from looking. You do some fantastic work.

I love the textures and colours you have created on your Mandala. I have just had a look at the close up view on Flickr. It looks a fantastic piece, of mixed media work...
What sign are you?
I'm guessing you are a Fire sign, maybe Leo?
Lovely to see you again.;)

Thanks, Jasmine! I haven't given any real thought to words yet. We'll see how that transpires today.

Thanks, Lyon! It was a fun project. I've shied away from any arty kind of work for years. It felt good to liberate some of that creativity.

Thank you, Jo! I am a Fire sign - Sagittarius with Leo rising, Virgo Moon. I enjoy your visits here!
