I hit a painter’s block for days 60-70. Mainly I let myself be intimidated by the color orange and the apparent change in brush stroke from the first layer of orange that I painted early on in this process. Logically I know it seems ridiculous. Emotionally I’ve been afraid to ruin the painting. Then I have to ask myself, what’s the worse that could happen? I ruin the painting. Okay so what if I did ruin the painting, then what? It’s the end of the world? Time to move through this.

My Mission: awakening our Creative Spirit 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? View all posts by The Mandala Lady
