Painting Mandalas


 I've been playing with my paint pens.  They are lots of fun and I am sure I will find other ways to use them. For now I have been painting mandelas.  Mandela is sanskrit for circle.

 Once again, this is going to take a lot of practice.

 I've put away my sewing for now. I sewed dozens of hearts and my stitches improved somewhat.  And then I got bored!

 All things felt have been packed away until the urge strikes me again.  If that ever happens.

I made one egg before the boredom set in.

Love your painted mandelas. Just beautiful. I have one I painted years ago. Your sewing has yielded some pretty designs too. I understand what you mean about getting bored after doing something a while. Happens to me too.

I love drawing and coloring mandalas. It's so soothing, almost hypnotic.
I think You're quite good with painting mandalas already!

I do like that heart with the two red toadstools, my favorite mushroom :-)

Have a great day!
