Monday Mandala Roundup – January

Catching up with the Mandalas, January edition

This is another piece of the catchup Monday Mandala Roundup series, for all the Patreon Monday Mandala posts.  Below, you’ll find the January ones, some full and some snippets.  Monday the 15th of January was so badly a Monday that it got two old-style doodles, but this was, overall, the month I got the hang of how to do and present these, as you can see.

Fan And Feather Mandala

My ducks are in a spreadsheet

I may not have mentioned that I was moving to a new office, trading spaces with someone else in the house, but that’s been a definite impact on my production and organization and blogging.  The good news is that I am, indeed, moved into my office!

I’m still working on making more art, but moving my office out of a temporary space it was shoehorned into during the migration and into the new space forced me to do a bit more organization and figuring out what and where and how many arts I have.  I even made a spreadsheet and put numbers after dollar signs!  That’s how serious it was.

The good news is that I am now in a place where I can put some physical things out for sale here in the digital world.  And thus, I present the first physical piece I completed in my new office …

Fan and Feather mandala

This mandala is an excerpt from the February Coloring Book Page for my Second Circle patrons over on Patreon. I’ll unpack that sentence in a bit, but let me get the important details out of the way first:

Watercolor and pen on 140lb watercolor paper, 5″x5″
Price is: unframed $30, framed $38; includes shipping within the USA

Email me if you are interested in this piece.

Now, to unpack: I have a Patreon, for those who like to support my work directly, and my levels of patronage there are based on circles (it’s a theme, yes).  The special reward for Second Circle patrons is a new coloring book page every month, typically mandalas.  I used the center section of the February one to trace this hand-painted, hand-penned version.

Monday Mandala Roundup – November

Catching up with the Mandalas

Back at the end of October, I opened up a Patreon for people who wanted to support me more directly than ordering things from RedBubble or wherever.  In addition to posting things just for patrons, that’s where I’ve been posting weekly mandalas (mostly a step up from the phone doodles!).  The Monday Mandalas are all public posts, so folks can check them out: https://www.patreon.com/ninthcircledesign

I still wanted to share them here too, without cross posting every single week.  So, I’m going to do some roundup posts here.  Below you’ll find the ones I posted in November – click the images to go the post on Patreon.

The 2017-11-05 Monday Mandala was a photograph of a piece in process, so will just link it: https://www.patreon.com/posts/mandala-monday-15237112

Mini Mandalas

And So It Begins

Here is the first of the promised actual real hand-painted items for sale directly.

These are all done on Artist Trading Cards, specifically Bristol paper, with ink and watercolor.  Most are traced from existing mandalas, but one is 100% original. All of these are 2.5″ x 3.5″. Frames with mats are matted to 2″x3″. Frame without mat is 2.25″x3.25″.

Payment preferred via PayPal and includes shipping to the US only; please email me at info ‘at’ ninthcircle.net to confirm availability and shipping and all that.

This one is 100% original work – designed directly on the card with compass, ruler, and circle template and a lot of patience. $15 unframed, $20 framed.

This is traced with some modification from a so far unpublished piece – Listening to the Universe Mandala. $10 unframed, $15 framed.

This is from the Simple Swirl Mandala. $10 unframed, $15 framed.

This is from another unpublished piece, so far unnamed. $10 unframed, $15 framed.

Yeah, this one too.  Clearly I realllly need to get a lot of pieces out of my done folder and out into the world. $10 unframed, $15 framed.

Interested in seeing some in-process images of these?  Check out my Patreon – in process photos go out to First Circle and higher patrons.

Want a nice big print? Check out my RedBubble profile – they usually run a sale on Mondays, code readily available on the website.
