ATC peacock mandala

After Christmas yesterday I took an easy day today. This mandala I did today, and I experimented with the material and speed. I must admit I like this loose way of working. Soon I will start a birthmandala, which will be acrylic on canvas again. I look forward to start a big one but these ATC cards are fun. They are like neat little projects. Na de kerst gisteren heb ik vandaag een rustige dag gehouden. Deze mandala heb ik net gemaakt. Een beetje geexperimenteerd met materiaal en snelheid. Ik moet toegeven dat deze losse manier van werken ook wel iets heeft. Binnenkort begin ik weer aan een geboortemandala, acryl op canvas. Ik heb er weer zin in om aan een grote te werken, maar deze ATC´s zijn leuk. Het zijn net kleine overzichtelijke projectjes.


  1. oh marianne!

  2. I love this mandala. Peacocks are such handsome creatures. You captured it well in this mandala.

  3. so beautiful!! I love the delicate lines as well as the soft colors. Wow!

  4. I like this looser style too. Love peacocks, they are so beautiful and you have captured this most well.

  5. hierdie is net so mooi as die een wat ek by die dieretuin gesien het in suid afrika...moooi! vlieg jy weer hierdie maand of net volgende jaar? liefs.

    Lovely and charming peacok here to greet us, setting a happy and colourful mood to us.

  8. The mandala is pretty and your Happy Holidays header is GORGEOUS.

  9. Marianne,

    This is really fun...I also like the looseness of it. I purchased some of these cards, but I have not used them at this point. I think I am kind of holding off for everyone to head back to their routines. :) It is the quiet, undisturbed time I need.

  10. What a neat mandala! I love how you continued the theme of the bird feathers around the edge. I need to learn that art of pulling the whole design together! I have made another mandala which I am saving to post for New Years!

  11. this is lovely! i love the gentle spirit it gives off....

  12. this looser style has made your work very alive... love it very much...
    it encompasses a bird, a flower , a sun... a world

    once a gain a Happy New Year form the crow!

    may all your days in the coming year brim with beauty and happiness
