Now that I finished the TATSH mandala itself, it’s time to “frame” it. For that I decided to paint a 12″x12″ canvas and then adhere the mandala directly on top. It wanted to have a more deeper space look to the background so I used varying shades of blue along with paynes gray to darken it without using black.
To create the “constellations” I’m using gel pens. Today I started with a light blue y&c gel pen. TATSH is starting to look like it’s a planet or possibly a portal in the this lush multiverse.
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?
