Mandala drawing #2: snowflakes

Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand – and melting like a snowflake…
Francis Bacon

These two looks like snowflakes in a way. Melting in my heart. I have lots of pens, but keeping my manadala drawings plain in their complexity.

Because I mentioned I’ve fallen in love with the doodle and draw technique of mandalas, right? And drawing them puts me in the poetry mindset right away. It’s the slowness that does it I think.

They say that every snowflake is different. If that were true, how could the world go on? How could we ever get up off our knees? How could we ever recover from the wonder of it?

  2. Loving these simple yet at the same time complexe doodle mandalas. There is definitely meditation involved in their creation. So very good for the Soul.
    Happy Summer hugs to you, Awesome One !

  3. Thank you for sharing, I hope you don’t mind (per another post) I’m posting this to my pintrest page. I just love this idea!

  4. I copied that first quote onto a waiting journal page…all prepped and waiting for some magical thing to write…thank you!

  5. What a fantastic quotation from Francis Bacon! Your mandalas are lovely…I’m happy that you are finding so much pleasure in creating them.

  6. These are so pretty! You have great style. I like the poetry of the mandala shape, and I love using parameters like this quite often when being creative. It seems geometrics and math have so much to do with creativity sometimes…
