Today I painted the pattern for the outer blue band of the inner square of Archangel #1 Mandala. I initially saw the pattern as an orb with a row of “parentheses” on either side of the orb. As I painted, it turned into a yin yang symbol with gold “commas”–upright and upside down.
This section reminds me of the duality of our existence here on Earth. And rather than painting white/black dots within the Yin Yang, gold went in their places, as if to represent the Divine connection within our dualist experience. Something to ponder, for sure.
This mandala is the focus for the Mandala of the Year as of July 1, 2017.
