About My Mandalas. 366/343.
I’ve become so accustomed to making, viewing and noticing mandalas in ‘my world’ and the ‘world around me’ that I see them ALL the time.
Now, I am not going to enter into any correspondence about mandalas and definitions because they are almost undefinable.
I sometimes use something from nature to inspire me and use an image to denote a mandala on my Instagram social media account. @denysewhelanblogs (it’s set at private for now, but ask for follow!).
I have posted a mandala example each day in Instagram and onto Facebook and Twitter. I also belong to a Mandalas group on Facebook where we share our photos of mandalas made and seen.
Since commencing mandala creation on July 1 I have completed at least one mandala a day. It is one of the purposes of my day. I just love it. I wake thinking of what I might create that day. Sometimes I do not post anything I have made that day because I see something in nature or elsewhere that is a mandala and I share that.
Over 175 Mandalas have now been made by me, and I love every one of them. I also love to share them. Recently my Dad who’d never heard of mandalas decided he loved them so much he asked for some for his unit. My older grandkids spied ones they liked last week and took them home. I asked facebook friends if they would like one (postage cost only!) and I sent 10 to new homes.
There is a lot of joy in the creation and the sharing and they have added to my mindfulness and creativity every single day.
In 2017 I will be continuing the practice. Try to stop me!
Each of these is on A3 size quality art paper and are originals by me. I used a variety of media. I was happy to see them go to new owners. It’s part of the joy of mandalas.
If you follow me on IG or are a Facebook friend or would like mandala I create in 2017, let me know. I love to share them as I said.
Thanks for your support too! I get lots of likes when I post my mandalas.
This is a first..and I think will not be the last. Posting under 2 categories here on the blog!
And I am joining Vanessa here for #archivelove on Friday 27 January 2017.
