“Hornpipes” Day 4 (final)

As I woke up yesterday morning, an image of the completed Hornpipes mandala flashed in my mind and I knew what I needed to do to finish it.

Hornpipes: Day 4
First go at the “wood” paneling around the mandala

Defined the paneling a bit more and then added words and phrases

You may be wondering about the dancing reference and this mandala. As an Irish step dancer in my youth we learned many Irish dances including the hornpipe. All of them were lively and fun to do. You can read all about them on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hornpipe.

This mandala reminds us to put more joy in our step…why walk when we can dance?
