People often say, when they see me coloring one of my mandala designs, “Oh I haven’t got the patience to that.” I usually reply that it’s not about patience, it’s about enjoying the process, which I do. That being said, I usually make the same “lack of patience” comment to people who quilt. Yet some of the most beautiful, eye-popping, jaw-dropping art I’ve ever seen, were quilts.
So with this week’s design I incorporated elements from three upcoming mandalas of the day. This way, I combined the idea of quilting with the joy of coloring! Huzzah!!!
“Anyone who works on a quilt, who devotes her time, energy, creativity, and passion to that art, learns to value the work of her hands. And as any quilter will tell you, a quilter’s quilting friends are some of the dearest, most generous, and most supportive people she knows.” ~ Jennifer Chiaverini
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?
