This week’s theme: Gardens
I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Gardens (from Sunday’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.
