Ballpoint Pen Mandala

This one was worked in spurts, 
sometimes going a week without touching it.
I painted the background with watercolors,
and did the mandala in two different ballpoint pens.
I feel like I may never ever feel very creative again.
Some of the spark is back, but it is sloowww,
and it is not linear.
Work is FINALLY going well, after over a year of 
crises. You know what happens when external
problems are over? You are stuck with yourself.
I'm not liking it very much, but the one saving grace
are the 2 year olds I work with every day.
They are frustrating at times, but oh so charming
and cute and loving.
I'm hanging in there, and keep on hoping maybe
I will consistently do some art.
