For day 2 of this month’s Mandala of the Month, Breezy, I spent most of the time drawing out the design onto the panel. Let me tell you…it was anything BUT breezy. I used two different templates and three different watercolor pencils (white, purple, black) to figure out how best to draw this out. Thankfully I used watercolor pencils because as each drawing attempt failed, all I had to do was wipe off the surface with a damp cloth. In the end (on my fourth try), drawing with the black worked the best.
On an up note, adding the translucent gold was easy and breezy 🙂
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?
