I did a little free-form stylin’ with this mandala. I “built” it based on the brush strokes already there.
My progress today:

1 – add black outline to “petal” brush strokes
2 – start adding white highlights
3 – finished white highlights
4 – re-outline black lines
5 – add gold dots to overall design
Previously I painted a spare 8″x8″ canvas with some left over fuchsia paint and created a loose floral pattern with my brush strokes.
So today, I used a black marker to loosely outline the petals and a white gel pen to give the petals some highlights. I finished it off with some gold gel pen dots.

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?
