Mandala

I had almost given up on this prompt...as I deal in so much color every day to limit myself was driving me a little crazy! But, then Cheryl posted her Mandala, her magical mango kitty, and her studio...and it inspired me!! You just have to love that!! So, I too decided to do a mandala (which I have been doing for years now) this one, inspired by the mango color that Cheryl loves so much, and by the Chinese lanterns that are growing outside my front door. They are magical lights for me, hanging so perfectly in the golden orange hues. They illuminate my path, and shine brightly for me today...So thank you Cheryl for reminding me of this color...and thank you mother nature for providing me with this brilliance. (shades of orange/blue/green/white and yellow)
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

So very glad you did not give up on the prompt! I'm thinking that when the full moon appears this month, it's going to look like a mandala!
