Van Gogh’s *Starry Night* - EST Weekly Challenge

I love our weekly challenges! The original idea came from Kreativlink and the whole point is to motivate us to create new things. I’ve wanted to increase my collection of mandalas for a while but never found the time or just had too many ideas at the same time and couldn't pick one so I gave up on making them. And now, it is a perfect timing! Each week, we have a new challenge and I can finally chose just one idea and execute it.

This week’s challenge, Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” was picked out by Staroftheast. 
 
Vincent Van Gogh "The Starry Night"

The colors of that painting reminded me a Spectrolite, which is is the most valued variety of Labradorite and can display the whole spectrum of colors. I chose a cobalt blue one with a splashes of yellow, orange and a little bit of red and voilà - another mandala :)
