  • Over Half Way!

    We’re over halfway through the void now, and the mandalas are still flowing. Journalling with words doesn’t come easily to me – I prefer to express my thoughts in visual ways…

    Travelling Through The Void

    …so I’ve been up in my studio for a while today responding to my thoughts. This is my first completed mandala painted with very wet acrylic paint in my mandala journal.

    There are two more in process…

    Crackle Void

    …this one is made with recycled cardboard, acrylic paint and crackle paint – the crackle paint is taking a long time to dry…

    Moulding Paste Void

    …and this one is made from a cardboard disc and moulding paste. It too is in the process of drying, and I will be painting it once the moulding paste has properly hardened. I’ll post more pictures of these when they’re finished.

    Mandala Response

    I’d been thinking about the void, and the cycle of the year and the new life germinating in the darkness…

    Mandala Response

    …I picked up some bottles of ready mix paint and a paint scraper, and created this mandala response.

    Journey Through the Void

    In between updating my website, creating mandalas and starting work on my next uni assignment, Ive been just a little bit busy – but the website and mandalas have been great fun to do!

    Universe Void Mandala

    Still travelling through the void, I made this ‘universe void’ mandala. While I was making it, I had a slight accident with my bottle of white acrylic paint. I accidentally knocked it over, spilling white paint all over my desk. Not being one to see anything go to waste, I quickly opened up another journal and used a paint brush to mop up the paint.

    White Round Mandala

    This is the result – a white, void mandala. I love the textures made by the thick ridges of paint!

    "For the darkness..."

    This last mandala was inspired by a song called ‘The Dark’ by Mary Grigolia.
