Rekindling a Daily Mandala Practice

Rekindling a daily mandala practice has been such a gift.  As I wrote in my last post, it began with my participation in Judy Shintani's creative project - 12 Mandalas in 12 Days.

Now, I'm keeping a small art journal...
and creating a mandala (4" in diameter or less) each day,
 using my chosen tools of a compass, pencil, permanent marker,
 a pan of watercolors and my favorite Niji waterbrush.

The process is very calming and  centering and takes an hour or less to do.

You could say it's just my way of  "checking in -
to see what condition my condition is in."

Here's a little slideshow I put together that shows some of February's mandalas...enjoy!
