[Select an image for a larger view]
1 – add shadows to round 7
2 – add shadows to round 8
3 – add details to center star
4 – add yellow and fine tune edges of design
5 – start to add copper shadow lines and fine tune edges of design
6 – finish adding copper shadow lines and fine tune edges of design
Today I spent over 3 hours adding shadows to the two outer rounds of the blue background and fine tuning the design edges with yellow and copper (the most time consuming). After all that I thought I would be finished with this mandala; however, it calls to me to add more details. I’ll come back to it in another couple of weeks. This is all I can do for now. 🙂

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?
