2017-292: The Astrological Sign of Cancer – Day 1

Today I started on the fourth sign of the Astrological Wheel: Cancer – The Crab.

My coloring progress for today:

In 2012 I created a hyperbolic tessellation mandala for each of the zodiac signs. For Cancer, its symbol is a crab and its claws. It’s fascinating how the overall pattern turned into a collection of “safety pins”.

Without looking I reached into my bin of colors to pick a starting color for the background and it turned out to be an earthy color called “dulled ivory”…to me it feels like a warm brown, like a rich soil awaiting its seeds to germinate.

Read about the “Sign of Cancer” as this week’s Mandala of the Week.

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.

Happy Coloring!

joyfully, Maureen
