Mandalas: Love

I've decided to share one of my newer Mandalas today, which I've named "Love".
I used shades of aqua, pink, purple, yellow, and gold. I'm not really sure what to say about this Mandala except that I wanted it to embody the idea of "love". I wanted to make the Mandala represent what I think love looks and feels like. I tried to stay centered with a feeling of love and joy while creating this work in order to manifest the idea within the drawing.

"Love" by Kaylee Hinrichs. May 2011. Inks. 

I tried to make the center part look very floral, like a pink Lotus flower. I also attempted to create a spiraling/spinning effect. (It's beautiful to see in person.) I've made some little touch-ups to the coloring and darkening the black lines. So far, this Mandala is one of my favorites.

peace & love,
