1-21-16. The last few months, it has been difficult to draw the mandalas on Thursday evenings for the poetry group. With the holidays and a slew of wet weather, on a number of nights I missed the circle-making. This evening was cold but offered a gap in the rainclouds. I had made a mistake in measuring the spokes, and my template didn't line up all the way around, annoying me a bit. I fixed it as well as I could, and the result is satisfactory. An exhausting session. The usual sketch-gathering nearby with the bros (and cat) is always fun.
