In looking at the Mandalas of the Day for this week’s theme, Mineral Orbs, I noticed that within most of them I could see what some people might call imperfections. The Obsidian Orb showed a solid black surface without any obvious markings, turning it into a black mirror…an object that could mirror back any outside imperfections into its surface. The other orbs, while polished to a smooth surface contained “floaters”, lines, and other such markings within its sphere…for all to see.
For this week’s mandala I chose to incorporate some “imperfections” into the design…which certainly makes it more interesting to color than a solid blank circle. Although…that gives me an idea for a possible future MotW.
This week’s mandala asks us to embrace our imperfections, every scar, every wrinkle, whether physical, emotional, or psychological…it’s what makes a more interesting. Each mark represents a story worth telling. Color them into the mandala.
