Added some more details to the 5″x7″ Observe Mandala using gel pens and then applied some varnish.
My progress today:

1 – start adding details to “grass blades”
2 – finished the “grass blades” and the whole piece
3 – sprayed a thin coat of varnish
Today I added pink hearts to the four “gold people” and then finished off the “grass blades” with some gel pen details. Next I sprayed on a thin coat of varnish to lock in the ink. Once that sets, I can brush on the liquid varnish. Without spraying first, the ink tends to smear. (learned that one from personal experience)
Read more about “Observe” via my Mandala of the Week post.

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?
