YELLOW PRICKLY PEAR MANDALA 1

This mandala is made from the yellow flowers of the prickly pear cactus. As you will see from future pieces, there is quite a variety of prickly pear cacti with blooms ranging from pink to yellow with red. I've used a new technique on the outer rings of this mandala which creates some interesting shapes with the negative space between the blooms. I will be doing more of that as it adds another level of interest.
