Autumn Mandala

This is my first attempt to make a mandala. Autumn is one of my favorite times of year so I get lots of inspiraiton from this time. If you like mandalas you can go Teri's Mandalas to see more. Teri is the person that introduced me to mandalas. I am still not sure what they are but seeing her work has intrigued me. Autumn singing with
berries, nuts and colorful leaves
makes me feel alive

This is so pretty Lisa and love the haiku!

Just think of a mandala as a zen experience. Make a circle and let the lines follow.

Lisa, you've created a lovely and unique mandala. I remember years ago a lady who used to make sand mandalas. They were exquisite works of art and she must have spent hours upon hours creating them. I love this beautiful watercolour mandala of yours.
