Here’s my step-by-step painting of the Mandala of the Week for week 48 of 2016. The theme for the week: Tis the Season for Ornaments. I used various watercolor media and gold, black, and white gel pens on 140# Strathmore 400 Watercolor paper.
Before painting this I had a couple of ideas for colors to use and yet when I painted it, only one remained, the background dark blue. All the other colors happened on the fly; it always seems to come out better that way. 🙂
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?
