Lotus flower mandala

Another expressive painting, this time in the form of a mandala with a lotus flower as the central image. Charcoal was used to define outlines and make marks and pointilism was used to add some interest. I dipped the end of my paint brush into white paint to make the dots. I like this strong image and the colors that emerged as the work was layered. All these expressive paintings look good with a simple black frame, which I am working on finding at the thrifts. My absence in the past week from my blog was due to a nasty cold and fever I had which has thankfully gotten better in the last couple of days.
