Red Chile Christmas Mandala Array

I have completed the mandala array made with red & green chiles. This one features a couple of new twists in the design. The process keeps evolving. This card will celebrate smokin' hot southwestern holidays. Here in Arizona, we string and hang red chiles, put lights on our saguaro cactus, make tamales, display our luminarias, and walk around in short sleeves over the holidays.

2012 Christmas Mandala

I have completed the 2012 Christmas Mandala made with photos of red & green chiles, for a smokin' hot Southwestern theme. I used the green chiles to make the background star. The red chiles would show up better on a darker green, but I want to preserve the Christmas colors. I show you the desing again on black which shows the pattern better. This looks best as a poster. I could add rings and expand to mural size for an awesome image.

Aloe Vera Mandala

I have completed the aloe vera mandala. The mandala array is next. The aloe vera is not the most beautiful plant or flower, but it gave me some intersting shapes to work with. Hummingbirds really like the flowers in the spring.
