Laid down the base colors for all the sections on the gessoed panel of the Bohemian Sunset mandala. It’s very colorful.

It used to be that I felt the need to paint it looking finished right from the start. Since then I’ve learned the value of painting in layers. So today it was all about putting down the base coats of colors.
And in this case, it’s all primary and secondary colors.
Read about the “Behomian Sunset” Mandala as this week’s Mandala of the Week.
btw: even though it states that this post was published on 9/6/17; to be honest, I actually painted it on 9/7/17. My virgo rising nature likes things neat, tidy, and organized. 🙂

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?
