ballon reflection

The blue of the Colorado ski adds to the bright colors of this Morning shot and I like the double and triple squares that form in the middle. Even the blue-green triangle balloon forms the edges of a square - if you allow your mind to finish the corners. The Ballons were doing a splash and dash manuver over a pond, thus the center is the reflection in the pond.

more of the emerging plants

From the picture in the last post. I liked the tightly formed leaves as the plant emerges from the ground. The repetition adds to the overall pattern. The color and shapes from the earlier Mandala are different - from different parts of the same photo

back to the new amongst the old post

This is the original picture of succulents emerging
The earlier post was mostly of the dead and dried foliage to the left , the next post will be of a Mandala that has more of the green in it - they are totally different yet from the same picture!

Hibiscus are lovely flowers on their own - the colors of this one were beautiful an I liked how they faded to white on the edge.

Affirmation in the wild flax flowers

This affirmation struck a cord with me and it fit in one of my recent Mandalas. The wild flax picture was taken on a trip to Crested Butte Wildflower Festival in Colorado.

new amongst the old

Succulents coming up in the debris from last year's growing season. I liked the light and dark patterns created by this picture. I'll upload a different version of the same photo in a couple days, that has much more green.

Just for Fun

Alien among us! My grandson got a balloon character made for him after dinner one night - it was an alien! Thought he looked kind of cute! He made for some interesting design elements, too.
