Actually, I hand draw ALL of my mandalas. However since this week’s theme on my Mandala of the Day blog site is “Mandalas – Hand Drawn” (by others), I thought I’d exaggerate a hand-drawing of a simple lotus blossom petal mandala for this week’s Mandala of the Week.
While we can paint and color this mandala any way we choose, this week’s mandala encourages us to add to it some patterns or designs to fill in the flower petals. Carol Farmayan’s hand drawn mandala, as showcased on Friday’s Mandala of the day, gives us some great ideas for inspiration. Notice how she draws outside the mandala as well. Feeling inspired?
This week’s mandala is all about putting our own “mark” on the world. How do we want to represent ourselves? What gives us joy? What sparks us to more forward? How do we want to be remembered?
On your mark, get set, go!

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?
