The weather is perfect for drawing mandalas, working with prismacolor pencils on black paper is soothing, and puts me into a very calm place. I began this mandala during our New Years Intention Setting Mandala Workshop. I haven't worked on it very much since. Perhaps I was waiting for the rains, we need them so much and now slowly they are appearing.
Here is the original mandala I did that day, in just the black on white.My focus was paying attention and walking through the open doors...however the full moon that day really influenced my work, hence the moon is the portal to possibilities in this mandala.
Sinking deep roots into my source as well as my skills, ancestors and visions, while expanding my reach and begining to set leaves of growth towards new directions......
It felt important to sink my roots in the greening of the earth
This mandala is still in process....As I expand beyond my boundaries into new directions...More to come
