In true Gemini form we have two things happening at the same time and in the end it should create a rather dramatic mandala. For a couple of days now I’ve been sensing this idea of using a dark gray background for the square-ish red/gray sections. Today I made the leap and tried it out.
In the process of adding the gray, my C7 gray copic marker decided to blurt out an extra big drop of gray onto the paper. (Image 11) Ack! Well something always seems to happen in one of my mandalas and they always seem to work out somehow. For now I’ll just leave it until the brilliant idea on how to “work it in” comes to mind. 🙂
Read about the “Sign of Gemini” as this week’s Mandala of the Week.

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?
