17-40: Rectangular Connections

Back in 2010 I felt like playing with a small piece of watercolor paper (4″ x 6″) and came up with this painting. I reversed matted it and decorated the frame and the paper with gold gel pen details.Rectangular Connections - watercolor painting - the mandala lady
It’s this week’s mandala of the week because it wants an upgrade…some mandalas would be nice as well. Mainly this was me playing with rectangles (instead of circles) to see what would happen. I like the colors and the shapes, especially the overlapping spaces.

So we’ll see what the addition of mandalas will do for this one.

About “Rectangular Connections”

It reminds us of our independence and our interdependence, with a subtle reference about the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. It also reminds us that we can maintain our individuality while interacting with others, by accepting and embracing our differences, raising the vibration of all involved.

By themselves the separate rectangles are plain and simple, however when overlapped it makes the piece a whole lot more interesting and enlivening. The same goes for us humans.

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!
