I struggled at first to see how Door Knobs wanted to be painted. I looked at one of the “petals” in the middle section and then I looked over at my paints. The ultraviolet purple caught my eye first. As I proceeded to paint the first “petal”, I sensed that the whole mandala wanted to be this color. So that’s what I did; a mandala with varying shades (values) of ultraviolet purple. It almost looks like porcelain. It’s a cool effect.
For this painting I used acrylics: M. Graham Ultraviolet Purple and Golden Matte Medium…that’s it.

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?
