[Select an image for a larger view]
1 – add tree trunks to dark blue band using paynes gray
2 – add highlights to tree trunks

4 – add ‘flowers’ to trees
5 – full view of today’s progress
Today I added details to the dark blue band by adding purple-hued tree trunks and branches to coincide and align with the purple tree sections that surround the entire square center.
Trees and roots play quite prominently in this mandala. It reminds us of our whole human existence, ever growing and expanding outward and inward, with new thoughts and ideas blossoming along the way.
This mandala is the focus for the Mandala of the Year as of July 1, 2017.
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?
