Today (8/1/9) I participated in the Corvallis Art Guild Clothesline Sale. Rather than paint today, I decided to display the mandala so that those in the area who are following this project can come view it up close.
I had a wonderful conversation with this one couple that viewed the painting (Tim & Phyllis). We talked about Escher and the exhibit that’s currently on display at the Portland Art Museum (Oregon) through Sept 13, which I highly recommend anyone in the Portland area go visit.
I told them that I had yet to determine what will be done in all the white space surrounding the mandala. Being inspired by our Escher discussion, Tim suggested I do some kind of metamorphosis band about 5-6 inches around the outside of the mandala. If you’re reading this Tim: I’m giving it serious consideration and some initial ideas are already popping into my head.
My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
