Mandala Magic

November 9, 2016

I am taking Julie Gibbons 5 days of Mandala Magic Even though I’ve been doing them a long time it’s still fun and enlightening plus a great form of meditation to know yourself better.

As I started this first one, I wrote this haiku:

         ‘Mandala Magic

           Creativity circles

           The essence of life’
Then as I progressed I wrote this haiku:

          ‘Geometric marks

            Creating a new design

            A meditation’
At the end I wrote;

       ‘Yet, in conclusion

         With all the geometry

          It’s still a Daisy’
😄😄😄. Used my new fountain pens

No Resolution Mandala

#inktober #haikutober Day 27

I am still enjoying making mandalas so I stayed with it. I can’t seem to get on Arizona time and have been waking up at 4-5am so I go for a walk, eat breakfast and start a mandala. My jet lag from Wisconsin (2 hours) won’t let up.

Haiku:

           ‘Thoughts swirling around

             Crashing into each other

              No resolution’

Pens:TWSBI, Lamy, Piper Cub, Micron and colored inks

Yesterday I committed to Julie Gibbons ‘5 days of Mandala Magic’ starting in November. I got in the mandala mood and did this one. I’m definitely ready for mandalas now. 

Haiku:

‘Circles and echoes

Blue, red and black harmony

Mandala pleasure’

3pens and 3 different color inks

          ‘Desert Agave

            The end is coming’

Full Moon

Playing with color and then thinking ‘Cactus Monday’ and haiku:

Luminous splendor

Full moon over the desert

A moon to wish on’

Love Knot Mandala

August 23, 2016


I haven’t used my ink pen in nearly 2 months so was feeling the need to hold it in my hand and sketch. I found the image on Pixabay so I created a mandala and wrote a haiku.

‘Look at this symbol

It’s made of simple fibers

Woven into love’

Abstract Mandala

August 4, 2016


I’ve been painting a few abstracts just for the fun of it.  And to see what’s in there. 

‘An abstract painting

Can reveal surprises

See the octopus?’
