I’m ready to move on to something besides Tulips but one last time, I wondered what would happen if I just kept progressively building upon an image and it’s resulting mandalas.  Here is the result of one such experiment.  They are in order of the steps (notice the image titles).

The more you push the boundaries, the less photographic the resulting mandala becomes.  I, personally, tend to appreciate them more when they still hold a glimpse of reality.  It’s just, then, a new way of viewing something you are familiar with.  But, you never know unless you try something different.  “I wonder” and “What if” are important to the creative process.

See you next week, without the tulips. 🙂
