Confused Mandala

"One must be drenched in words, literally soaked in them,
to have the right ones form themselves
into the proper patterns at the right moment."
~ Hart Crane


A lot of mandalas have been created this month. On par with the level of drawing during our 3 week trip this summer... more than one a day. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with two 30 day challenges, would I lose interest? Forego the challenge? This is in black PITT pen (XS) in a 5.5"x8.5" Canson watercolor journal. This journal is quickly losing my love. I watercolored the mandala with bright cheerful colors, only to add sepia + winsor blue edging... a questionable choice.... but after all painting is just to paint, and I was curious how it would look.
