Drawing The Light From Within

Recently I have been placing my attention on the positive, regarding some personal, life challenges.

This process has made me realize how my on-going involvement with the mandala process has deeply influenced me.

So, I am posting some of my images as well as ones created at Illuminated Mandala Retreats that Patricia Waters (art therapist and my co-partner at the Creative Arts Studio) have facilitated at past mandala retreat days.

By drawing on black paper with white prismacolor pencils and using the pencil as a light orb, directly connected to the light within the heart space, we transform traditional shading into a powerful, dynamic metaphorical process for drawing the light from within.

This amazingly simple art process allows us to manifest an image of the creative life force directly in front of our eyes, on the richness of the deep, black space of our unconscious...represented by the paper.

For more information on our next Illuminated Mandala Retreat Day...
Sunday March 25...see our website .... (click on the mandala & workshop pages)

Both myself and Patricia my partner at the Creative Arts Studio are facilitators of the Mandala process developed by Judith Cornell.
