Even though I am gearing up to begin focusing on my greeting card business, I can't not continue to create new mandalas. Discovering a passiflora vine uncommon to this area has inspired me to create a couple of new mandalas using the photos I have taken of it.

I love the indigo, magenta and violet colors in this flower and in these images. The top image seems more like a shield, while the bottom image reminds me more of an old fashioned botanical print. I also acknowledge being influenced a bit recently by the work of Jeannine Roberts Royce at Golden Flower Studio. Exquisite stuff.
