Creating mandalas is a contemplative practice for me. The need to focus completely on drawing the circles, then the designs, and adding the colors, while still moving with the creative flow is a way to let go of the stressors of the outside world. Sometimes I simply color in the designs in my mandala coloring book, and sometimes I create my own. This is one I created. I drew the circles, and then it seemed to take on a life of its own. My husband said it looked like a stained glass window, and in many ways it is just that - a window into my heart space.
