Materials: Pigma Micron Pens; Canson Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper
For the first time in a long while, I’ve created a new mandala design. Titled Hours, this piece is notable for the two segments of twelve on the interior of the circle (representing the hours of the day and night), and then the sixty block segments making up the outer rim (representing the minutes of an hour as well as the seconds of a minute).
Originally, I had planned for filling in the black sections with more randomized line work like in the rest of the segment. However, upon finishing one segment, I found that there just wasn’t enough contrast for my taste. So I went to town with my largest Micron pen to fill in the spaces.
I was inspired to create this because of how quickly time seems to be passing for me this year. My daughters are growing up so fast (my youngest started kindergarten and my eldest started middle school). Outside the weather is getting cooler, and I can see some of the trees’ leaves are starting to turn yellow. Already half a year is gone, and I have no idea where all those days went.
