Butterfly Mandala - Completed

Butterfly Mandala
Primacolor Pencils on Paper

Well I am finally finished with the Butterfly mandala.  I worked on it, on and off for about 5 days.  My focus is a little off, so I would draw for a hour or so, put it aside and come back to it again, several times a day, with taking a day off in between.  Something about this process, has helped me find my clarity of focus and as I worked I could tell my that my mind got clearer as my stamina grew.  

Day by day I feel stronger and have more confidence in my legs.  The butterfly seems a fitting symbol for the healing process I am engaged in at this time.  

Whats next?  Well maybe another mandala, getting out my journal again, or just sinking into a book or another movie as I rest in between practicing walking and stretching my hip.  

The interesting thing about having this blog, is that as I recuperate I have avenue for sharing, show and tell of my art, which I love to do.  It allows me not to feel so alone or isolated in this journey.  I am a rather extroverted person, and being house bound and dependent on others is a challenge.  So I appreciate this venue as well as any comments from other readers, viewers, voeyuers out there across the  universe.  

Speaking of Across the Universe, I saw that movie yesterday, and I loved it.  Check it out, it is an under rated, off the A list gem of a movie.  Ciao.  Caterina
