Whew! I have been obsessed with this painting for several days, it is finally complete!
I have been painting smaller pieces for the last few months and I really felt the need to stretch out and get on a bigger canvas. There’s a lot of details in there, and several surprises! Of course, I added the mandalas, which have been reoccurring in all aspects of my life lately, they are popping up everywhere, perhaps as a sign?
A little research on mandalas tells me; The meaning of the word mandala in Sanskrit is circle, or completion. Mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. The circular designs symbolizes the idea that life is never ending and everything is connected. The mandala also represents spiritual journey within the individual viewer. If you are interested in learning more about the healing benefits of mandalas, this is an interesting article.
So there you have it! While I was working on this painting over several days my mind was wandering and wondering what the future holds for me. It feels like a change is coming, so this is the perfect time to manifest the things I want in life and maybe start a new vision board! 😊
