This week’s MotD theme: Glass

I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Glass (from Sunday’s MotD post). With today’s coloring I decided to play with a new-to-me painting technique in the purple, green and red sections. I took photos of my progress which you can view on my ArtProgressions.com blog.

Essentially I wanted to play with the fluidity of watercolors to emulate (as best I could) art glass, while also playing with a variety of colors. The golden-orange section, without any embellishments, feels like a pathway leading me along, giving me opportunities to play along the sidelines as I make my way through the mandala (life).

Inspiration for Today

Today’s mandala inspires us to try new things, to allow ourselves to play, explore, and even mess up a bit as part of our expansion and growth. Know that when we expand in one area of our lives, we tend to expand in others as well. Keep on keeping on!

Happy Coloring!
