At first glance this may seem like an odd choice for the Mandala of the Day. However upon closer inspection you’ll notice why I chose it.

Jane Perkins, an artist in found things (her words), re-created Vermeer’s most beautiful painting, Girl with a Pearl Earring, into this stunning piece of art using mostly round buttons and other found round items.

It boggles my mind. I so appreciate her artistry and vision. Who would think to use such small ordinary items to create such an extra-ordinary objet d’art? Jane, apparently. I am truly inspired.

About Jane (in her words):

I am a ‘re-maker’, taking inspiration from found objects and working them into something new. …I love art with an element of fun and the unexpected, and hope my work will make you smile!

Jane, your art is delightful!

Happy Coloring!
