Breezy Mandala – Day 1: #2 – added a wash of light blue permanent
#3 – added a “wash” of vivid lime green
#4 – added a wash of light green permanent
#5 – added a “wash” of manganese blue
#6 – added more “washes” of blue and green
#7 – ended today with adding more textures of blue and green
For this month’s Mandala of the Month, I selected a mandala design I sketched in 2002 entitled, “Breezy”. It had yet to see the light of day…until this month. Before the mandala appears on the scene, I want to create a textured background, a foundation upon which to build the mandala.
Today I started out with a blank 2″ deep 12″x12″ wood panel that I textured with gesso yesterday. In my mind, I saw the background as being loose and carefree in blues and greens. So one by one, I added light blue, lime green, light green, and manganese blue.
Now that the foundation is laid, I can move forward with transferring the design onto the painting when I do “Day 2.”
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?
