Old and new one

The first

The second

Can you see the similarities and differences?
I went wrong with the year of her birth, in the first I painted 1977 in the second 1967.
One number makes a huge difference in the outcome.

Hope you enjoyed the process of the second mandala 
I did :)

  1. It is interesting to see how it develops Marianne. I think they are both beautiful but I know the second is more meaningful because it has the correct date.

  2. both are beautiful. ah well, i know dates and numbers seems solid but in some ways they are arbitrary. maybe the first one was the one she needed to guide her through the years.

    1. Yes probably.............Everything always happens with a reason I guess.

  5. i love every single mandala you make, marianne, but this first one with its purples and greens and pinks really calls to me. i know it was the wrong date but suki makes a good point. i'll bet it was just right at the time.

    i hope you are feeling okay.

    love love

  6. Hallo Marianne,

    Ik kreeg gisteren van een vriendin een tip over een nieuw boek dat jou misschien ook wel zal interesseren:
    Werkboek heilige geometrie in de mandala, de platonische vormen. Gaat ook over graancircels en er staan voorbeelden enz. in. Uitgever is Ahasha en het boek is geschreven door Ineke Reinalda.

    Ik heb het zelf nog niet gezien, hoor.
    Groetjes
    Wieneke

  7. Wat mooi zoals je laat zien hoe een mandala is opgebouwd - met die toelichting erbij betekent het nog meer.
    Fijne vakantie!

  8. I've missed several days of blogging - it was so fun to look back and see the progression. I bet Arja loves it! I especially like how you included the diagrams such as how to draw a hexagram.
