This week’s theme:  Tables

I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Tables (from Sunday’s MotD post). In the MotW post, I wrote about the human trinity (body, mind, spirit) and how it serves us to maintain balance with all three.

So in painting “Tables” I used orange, green and purple as my three colors.  After I finished, I realized that I had used the secondary colors. What’s cool about these colors is that it takes the combination of two colors to make them: red/yellow = orange, yellow/blue = green, red/blue = purple. As for the background, it just felt like it needed to be blue skies with some puffy white clouds.

I used Holbein, Golden, and M. Graham acrylic paints with Golden Matte Medium and a black ink pen to re-outline the design.

Soon I’ll be posting images of my progress through this painting on my ArtProgressions.com blog site.

Inspiration for Today

“Oh, what a catastrophe, what a maiming of love when it was made personal, merely personal feeling. This is what is the matter with us: we are bleeding at the roots because we are cut off from the earth and sun and stars. Love has become a grinning mockery because, poor blossom, we plucked it from its stem on the Tree of Life and expected it to keep on blooming in our civilized vase on the table.”
D. H. Lawrence

Happy Coloring!

joyfully, Maureen
