I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Gardens (fromSunday’s MotD post). When I first created this design I saw one way I could paint it and planned to follow through on it. Then this morning while meditating I saw these stepping stones that appeared to be going up into the night sky. I knew right then how I wanted to paint this week’s MotW.
I used acrylic paints, matte medium, and gel pens (white and light blue) on Canson mixed media paper. I also felt inspired to paint swirly designs upon the picket fence.
In the next day or two, I’ll be posting images of my progress through this painting on my ArtProgressions.com blog site.

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?
