Heart. Soul. Peace. Love.
I have been kind of obsessed with mandala-making for years. This summer, I really wanted to begin incorporating more spiritual elements into my work and have been trying to find a comfortable balance in making spiritual art that speaks to my own experience.
The thing that is tricky, for me at least, about making mandalas is the circle. Until my husband bought me this lovely new compass, my mandalas were limited to whatever round objects I could trace. The compass has literally changed my life with respect to the mandala. Oh this makes me happy.
I have only just begun this piece, and already it has brought such a great energy into my aquamarine studio. I cannot wait to get back to work on it once I have finished posting this.
I'm hoping to offer this as an origninal and a print in my Etsy shop. (Opening very soon, I promise!)
