A Mandala Monday

And a Happy Monday to all. Finally the sun is shining here in Missouri, and we are suppose to be in the 70's by the end of the week.

One of my many favorite things to do are Mandala like artwork. Along with that I also love to do anything with paper, Kirigami, Origami, Folded paper, Cut Paper, whatever.

The first picture below is a piece I did by folding paper. It looks somewhat like a quilt pattern, but, also with the symmetry could be a mandala of sorts.

The two designs below are just some simple mandala type pieces I did. I didn't realize until I was done that in the one at the bottom, it has part that looks like tennis racquats. I used to play tennis 4 and 5 times a week, but then I tore up my knee and plus my aging body stopped me from doing that any longer. I do miss it.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week. Here is a little quote to start your week off.

"Try to learn something about everything and everything about something." - Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895)
