17-35: Bohemian Sunset Mandala

Bohemian Sunset


In 2007, I created one asymmetrical mandala a day for 21 days. “Bohemian Sunset” is one of the color pencil mandalas from that series. It was nicely preserved in a black metal frame, with a crisp black circle cut-out mat and all behind glass.

The downside to glass? Reflective glare. It prevents people from clearly seeing the actual art and all its nuances. So this week I decided to bring it out from its hiding place. It feels like a metaphor for me at times. When given the opportunity, I tend to hide.

About ‘Bohemian Sunset’

I created this mandala as a doodle. When I finished coloring it and asked it what it wanted to be called, “Bohemian Sunset” immediately came to mind. To me it has a nomadic feel to it, reminding us to enjoy all the color and vibrancy this human experience has to offer. From water, to deserts, to mountain tops, to the forests, it’s all there for us to embrace and appreciate.

It invites us to explore both our diverse outer world and our vast inner world, seeking treasures of insights and joy, sharing in its delights, and empowering us all to…

Be bold! Be colorful! Be magnificent!

About the Mandalas of the Week

Each week I choose one of my existing mandala paintings that wants to be upgraded OR create a new one and post it here. Throughout the week, I paint/draw/color/collage/etc it and post my progress on the Mandala of the Day. I post the upgraded version later in the week.

Happy Coloring!
