Word of the Year Mandala

I'm taking Misty Mawn's Full Circle workshop and the first journal lesson was to paint a mandala.  She painted several ones in different styles using acrylic paint.  I didn't feel like messing with acrylics last night so I pulled out my watercolors.  I incorporated my word for the year in the center.  I plan to keep this out in my art space where I can see it every day to remind myself of what I want to try to accomplish this year.  This ended up being more a mixed media piece because I added ink, colored pencils and a bit of acrylic white paint.

I will do an acrylic painted one soon and try to use a more muted palette instead of the brights that I'm used to.  I want to try and stretch and step out of my comfort zone.  Keep an eye out for the next one!
