This week’s Mandala of the Week, Observe Mandala, starts with a 5×7 indigo blue canvas, painted from another day.
My progress today:

While staying at a friend’s house, their dog, Reggie, inspired the title of this mandala. Lying next to me I held up the blue canvas to him I asked him what to call this mandala. He just continued to intently stare out the sliding glass doors into the garden, without breaking his gaze. In my head I heard “Observe.” Okay, Observe it is.
Like Reggie I intently stared at the canvas. Different shapes and patterns emerged from the paint strokes already on the canvas. With a black gel pen, I drew out some of what I “saw” (image #2)
Then it was a matter of overlaying the outline with colors that I felt inspired to use in that moment. We’ll “see” where it goes from here on another day.

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.
