I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Spirals (fromSunday’s MotD post). Because of the Celtic spirals within this design, I felt compelled to use green and gold in the middle. Within the outside spirals I used a warmer green, a pearlescent white, and a warm velvety red. A lot of action going on this mandala. It’s almost hypnotic. “You are getting veeeerrrryyyy sleeeeepppyyy.”
I used Holbein, Golden, and M. Graham acrylic paints with Golden Matte Medium, and a pink gel pen.
Soon I’ll be posting images of my progress through this painting on my ArtProgressions.com blog site.
Inspiration for Today
“The spiral is a spiritualized circle. In the spiral form, the circle, uncoiled, has ceased to be vicious; it has been set free.”
~ Vladimir Nabokov
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?
