Mandala Magic

Everytime I draw a mandala, the feeling is magical – the way the strokes and patterns form and create something amazing!
Everytime there is this feeling of “Omg! How did I even draw this?”



This feeling of magic is inspiring too – nudges me to try more patterns! For example, now I feel comfortable with the paisley and I feel the flow of that pattern has become smooth and I am not struggling with the curves.



I have used metallic acrylic paints for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed the brush strokes!



Ok ok…let me come to this one.
This mandala with the six pointed star (also called #starofdavid) represents the unity of Shiva (masculine) and Shakti (feminine). To witness this unity among the backdrop of the Universe and the Milky way is magical!


The phases of the moon around this mandala is just the thing that helps us to understand that everything is cyclical in this Universe. What wanes will grow! What goes up will come down! I actually feel that women have better idea of things happening in a cycle as we go through the cycles of menstruation.



I just love how everything is interconnected in this Universe and created with such precision!
