I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: For Whom the Bell Tolls (fromSunday’s MotD post). I felt inspired to create a stained glass window effect to this mandala design, connecting the flowers by way of the tips of their petals. Adding the white highlights to it makes it seem (to me anyway), that the “bells” are ringing.
I used watercolors and gel pens for this painting.
Inspiration for Today
It would seem that we are at the mercy of others affecting our being-ness, when in fact we are the ones who determine our state, our fate.
Be who we are and let it ring proudly throughout the land, inspiring others to do the same, creating a stained glass window effect of a co-existing humankind.
If you would want your mandala or your idea for a mandala to be considered for the “Mandala of the Day”, read about how on the Participate page. It’s easy! Or recommend one you’ve seen via my Contact page.
My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light 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?
