detail of mandala in progress: gouache on paper © linda dalal sawaya 2014

 this is a detail of my mandala painting in progress! just love this process—it is a spontaneous  process within a defined structure with particular steps along the way, and areas of contemplation to allow the images to emerge.

this is my third mandala done in this way, since a friend taught me in 2004. i painted two and then there has been a long dry time. i am so grateful to be back in the experience of creating this new one. it is very energizing and surprising! such a blessing and a creative expression.

art saves lives! peace, love, and blessings to you in the new year! do what you love...this is all we have, this moment.
