Mandala Meditation Stone: Buried Treasure
I’ve had a batched of primed Mandala Meditation Stones ready for two months waiting patiently for some attention. Today, as I looked at all of them, this one “raised its hand” and cried out “pick me!” So here it is. I used acrylic gold paint for the “cracks” and a variety of gel pens for the “petroglyphs”.
“Buried Treasure” encourages us to seek our buried treasure within and appreciate the “cracks” in our armor…they provide golden nuggets of wisdom.
While I finished painting it, it still needs multiple coats of artist quality gloss finish which will really make the colors pop and shine.
About the Mandalas of the Day:
I post a variety of in-progress art for that day which can include mandalas from the Mandala of the Week, the Mandala of the Month, the Mandala of the Year, or the Mandala Meditation Stones.

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?
