Circle of Love Mandala.
This is the first mandala I've ever done,
made especially for  Kat's Art Journal.

I included all of 8 of us 'art-swappers', 
so Kat would know she has friends all over who love her,
even if we can only touch each other with our hearts.

calendar pages
gel pen
a leap of faith

There is a a celebration of La Calaca  
happening every day of October on Rebecca's Blog

Open to anyone who would like to share
a picture a day, or any day a picture.
All leading up to 
 La Dia de los Muertos.

  4. How incredible- I LOVE your mandala and sall the layers of color, texture and love that went into it; how amazing!

  5. This is so inspiring to me. I have been a little intimidated to do a mandala. I absolutely love what you did and how perfect to add all our names. You and Kat have both inspired me to give it a try. Inspiration mixed with some courage, who knows what might appear? Thanks for sharing, I just love to be spoiled!!


  6. See how we inspire each other so! I've loved every minute :)

    Did you read that I went on art retreat last weekend. It was amazing! Teachers included Teesha Moore, Orly Avineri, Madelyn Mulvaney and Flora Bowley. Tam Laporte (from Willowing) was there as participant too and so many amazing and inspirational women. One you will love - her name is Clare Campbell. She is a true wild woman. Check her out here http://www.clarecampbell.org/ and watch videos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vl2R5fkrPew&feature=relmfu

  7. This is the first time I have encountered a blog set up this way. It took forever for me to figure out how to see the post and leave a comment. I'm glad I stuck with it because this was BEYOND impressive. Your art is beyond belief.

  8. Perfect that your first mandala is for Kat.
    What a beautiful display of love....
    you are full of LOVE and it spills over all around
    Thanks for being you.

  9. Hi Sweetie, good to see you. Love your mandala and calaca. Thx for stopping by my blog. Yes it's fun doing puzzles, especially this one. Would you be interested in doing it? Let me know because I have a plan about that puzzle. Take care and I hope you are enjoying your new home. How wonderful it is to have roots, right?

  10. I am so in love with that mandala, just perfect!

  11. It's hard to believe that this is your first mandala. It reminds me of an exotic set of tarot cards-original cards telling a story that only you know Lisa. Beautiful!

  12. Even out of your "comfort zone" your art is pure deliciousness! I love this mandala. It's so "Kat" as well as so "Lisa". This Round Robin has become very special. We will do it again. (I love the suggestions you made for adding a few artists :)

  13. Your mandala is beautiful! So many great elements. Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's nice to hear from you. Hope you'll have fun decorating your new house too. Can not believe how quickly the year has gone. So much has happened..I'm sure for you too.

  14. Gorgeous Lisa and guess what I did my first mandala a week ago - for my friend who makes shawls. Mary of course at the center and is surrounded by a circle of shawls and I called it Our Lady of the Shawl. We are in sync you and I and yours is gorgeous did I say that already? well, it is worth repeating.

  15. Oh this is beautiful! I love how you've used a mandala for Kat's book as a tribute to her work, yet made it in your own individual style. The segment for each of the artists is a fantastic idea (I must say I especially love "mine" with the butterfly!)- we're almost full circle with the project now and this represents that perfectly.


Thank you for taking the time to comment ♥
