My fascination with mandalic motifs has been ongoing for the past 25+ years. I've drawn them,
and even 'pointillismed' them (which, like the paper mache horse, comes under the category of never again!).
I've added natural elements to them,
as well as alien-looking ones.
and I've created a colouring book especially for adults from them (see top right sidebar for Color Me Up!).
In all cases, I've not only learned from the experience of creating them, but I've achieved a level of meditative peace that I've found through no other means. There is something about the process of creating mandalas that slows time, fosters introspection, and brings peace.
