And on the third day, I completed the coloring of section 2 of the 2012 Mandala of the Year. The third day being while I sat in my booth space at the Corvallis Indoor Winter Market on February 25.
I like using a variety of marker brands for a variety of effects. I use the brush style markers to ‘paint’ the backgrounds and textures. Then I like to overlay them with the gel and fine tip markers to add special effects and highlights. On the final slide you see a detail photo that shows how I used a gold gel marker to add hieroglyphic-styled markings…something that would be challenging to do with paint or color pencils.

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?
