I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Quilts (fromSunday’s MotD post). For this version of the Quilts Mandala my color inspirations came from several of this week’s mandalas of the day. In the end it came out rather bold…but then again I rarely do subtle. 🙂
I used Holbein, Golden, and M. Graham acrylic paints with Golden Matte Medium. To re-create the stitching patterns, I used gel pens.
Soon 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?
