My painting progress for today:
[Select an image for a larger view]
1 – add lt green highlights to bubbles
2 – outline the bubbles in black
3 – enlarge green bubble in the center of the “flower”
4 – add iridescent pearl highlights to green bubbles & blue “drops”
5 – add bronze “tadpoles” to background
Abstract Mandala #2 – Marigold with Blue
With this update, I added highlights and more definition to the green bubbles, enhanced the “flower” center, and added bronzy “tadpoles” to the background- at least, that’s what they look like to me. I’ll be adding more definition to them soon.
For me the addition of the “tadpoles” seems to ramp up the energy levels of this piece. They reminds us we can access this infinitesimal well of new ideas and new thoughts at any time without it ever running dry.
So just go for it. When a new idea or thought sparks our interest, makes our hearts skip a bit, or sends tingles through our bodies, follow its lead! The possibilities are endless!

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?
