🎨 Fresh Paint! "Higher Healing" Mandala
Updated: Aug 17, 2019
Lately I've been having fun painting some small Mandalas. In a lot of cultures, Mandalas have a sort of sacred or healing vibe to them. In my case, painting them helped me overcome years of alcohol abuse.
Over the past few weeks I've really felt connected to that healing vibe they have. When I finish any painting, Mandala or my 1980's style, I always get a sense of accomplishment and a joyful feeling that's hard to explain. But these last couple of weeks I've also been feeling really positive overall. I've been making time to enjoy sitting in the sun meditating, I've been reading about ancient civilizations and UFO's.
Sometimes when your art is also a business, taking time to relax can feel like "wasted time", it can feel hard to relax because there's always something else to do for the business. But, when I DO take the time to relax, it seems the art flows much better.
I decided to name this one "Higher Healing", because it feels like there's a higher purpose at work behind my art sometimes. I hope some of those happy and healing vibes get transmitted to you as you look at it!
