POMEGRANATE MANDALA1

This mandala brings in a whole new dimension to the designs process. Instead of creating concentric rings with single flowers or asymmetrically paired blooms, I have used mirror images paired and arranged so as to generate these interesting negative spaces.

Again, Brian has been nagging me about negative space and its importance in the design process. I thought I knew what he was talking about, but when I stumbled onto this, I went "A hah!" I don't know where this stuff comes form. I feel like I am just along for the ride. Now, I may have to go back and redo all my mandalas to incorporate this design element. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
