This week’s theme: Kites

I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Kites (from Sunday’s MotD post). I thought I might try to tone down the wildness of this week’s mandala design, but the mandala had other ideas. Lots of energy flying out of these six white kites. It’s almost hypnotic.

For this painting, I used M. Graham and Golden acrylics paint on Canson’s mixed media paper, enhanced it with a micron #1 black marker, gel pens, and a uni-ball signo white pen.

In the next day or two, I’ll be posting images of my progress through this painting on my ArtProgressions.com blog site.

Inspiration for Today

Let’s Go Fly a Kite
Songwriters: Richard Sherman / Robert Sherman
With tuppence for paper and strings
You can have your own set of wings
With your feet on the ground
You’re a bird in a flight
With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite

Oh, oh, oh!
Let’s go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let’s go fly a kite!

When you send it flyin’ up there
All at once you’re lighter than air
You can dance on the breeze
Over ‘ouses and trees
With your first ‘olding tight
To the string of your kite

Oh, oh, oh!
Let’s go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let’s go fly a kite!

Happy Coloring!

joyfully, Maureen
