I took a few days off from painting the “Bangles” mandala. Partly it was a timing issue and partly/mostly I was intimidated with painting the orange frames. I actually started them on day 55 and stopped half way through painting the first orange frame.
The left and bottom sides looked completely different from the top and right sides style-wise. It looked as if two different people painted it. It freaked me out because I felt that I was clueless as to what I am doing.
Today I took the advice from a title of one of my favorite books: “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway.” After a few tries at it I all started to fall into place.
In this photo you can see the two orange frames I painted on the left and parts of the two frames yet to be painted on the right. This gives you a good idea of the fine tuning that was done today.
Here’s the full view photo. Tomorrow I continue with the orange frames.
