This week’s MotD theme: Mandala Artists

British mandala artist, Stephen Meakin, The Mandala Company, designed and painted this large, beautiful mandala with a mix of celtic and islamic design components. I love all the intricate patterns and the vibrant colors, some of which if I saw them on the palette I would wonder how they could all work together. Amazingly they do!

About this painting he states:

The mandala of 18 Golden Swans holding 9 hearts between 9 pairs whose feathers touch just so. A painting born in the sky and with the knowledge of the 9 key Stars that light the constellation of Cygnus. This mandala of global consciousness is engineered around an Enneagon or 9 sided polygon so the geometry within forms the Ennagram or nine pointed star. We are each other.

Inspiration for Today

Stephen’s swans mandala reminds us that sometimes being “lost” in the details turns into a great and meditative way to “discover” ourselves in the whole picture.

Happy Coloring!
