This week’s MotD theme: DIY

I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: DIY (from Sunday’s MotD post). I pretty much just “let ‘er rip” with this one. I randomly put colors in the all the rectangular areas first and then it became more of a brainless activity with little thought involved.

I bought a new white paint pen and decided to try it out as highlights on the center pieces. Then on a whim I had the idea to put patterns into each of the rectangles. Part of me rejected this idea because I was tied and wanted to go to bed; the other part won out and decided to go for it.

Inspiration for Today

Sometimes it serves us best to just “let ‘er rip”, to let the creative juices flow through, temporarily overruling any and all left brain logic. It becomes more of an active meditation process that way.

I’m happy to post my colorings however I would really love to share and showcase your colorings here as well. Feel free to send them to me. Or you can post them on my Mandala of the Day Facebook page.

Happy Coloring!
