Traveling Black Mandala

March 24, 2008

It seems I always do my mandalas in color so I wondered how it would look all in black.  Gosh, it was hard not to add color somewhere 🙂

    Oh,I’m way behind on reading this Blog (blush… I keep seeing and commenting on your mandelas onyour flickr!. They just look so totally cool!

    Teri, could you elaborate a bit on what inspires you to creat a mandela? I don’t really understand how they are drawn/painted. I’ve always admired your mandelas and those of other people, but I really don’t know how they are ceated.Is it something to do with mathmatical formulas, or am I totally off track?

    Thanks!

    Bonny, that is a really hard question because, for me, they are so subconsciously done. I make the circle, take the pen in my hand and just start making lines. As the lines are made they lead me to making more lines or designs or using color. I rarely try to be symetrical. Making these is like meditation, I just let my mind wander along with my pen.

    I think some people use math but I never do, wouldn’t even know how.

    Does this make any sense?

    Teri, your explanation makes perfect sense. It’s like the art of a doodle within a circle. I like that it’s just a simple act of letting your creativity take you to the zone and let it just happen. I’m not too great at math, anyway! 🙂

    Thanks for the explanation.
