This week’s theme:  Yarn

I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the Week: Yarn (from Sunday’s MotD post). This one turned out quite bold and very primary in its colors. Only when I added the gel pen details did it all come together for me; prior to that it seemed a bit intense. I really like how the center came out…it looks like purple and green hands joined in a circle. All of which just reminds me to relax, let go, and trust in the flow.

I used Liquitex, M. Graham, and Golden acrylic paints, with a variety of gel pens for the details.

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

Inspiration for Today

“I’ve always done things the hard way. I was born like a piece of tangled yarn. The job is trying to untangle it, and I’ll probably go on doing it for the rest of my life.” ~ Karen Allen

Happy Coloring!

joyfully, Maureen
