The making of...........

As most of you already know I have painted a mandala for my dear friend Laurel (Studio Lolo)

Here you can see the mandala step by step!

It was a pleasure to paint this one, Laurel has very special numbers in het birthmandala, she has 2 masternumbers. I think it has turned out wonderful but that´s no surprise since Lolo is such a special person , to all of us and to every animal who needs her help.

If you want to read more about the meaning of this mandala please visit Lolo's blog, who made a wonderful post about her mandala.

I have been very busy the last few days and still will be the next 2 days, I have been visiting your blogs but had no time to leave comments, but I will next week or later today........

Have a wonderful Easter Weekend!

Zoals jullie bijna allemaal wel weten heb ik een mandala geschilderd voor mijn lieve vriendin Laurel (from Studio Lolo)

In deze video kun je de mandala stap voor stap zien !

Ik heb met veel plezier gewerkt aan de mandala van Laurel, ze heeft er 2 meestergetallen in. Heel bijzonder, maar dat verbaasde me niet echt, Lolo is een heel bijzonder mens. Voor ons allemaal , maar ook voor alle dieren die haar hulp nodig hebben.

Als je meer wilt weten over de betekenis van haar mandala klik dan hier. Lolo heeft op haar blog een mooie post over haar mandala gemaakt.

Ik heb het nogal druk gehad de laatste dagen en weinig kunnen bloggen, ik heb wel op jullie blogs gekeken, maar geen tijd gehad om commentaar te geven, dat doe ik later vandaag of deze week.......

Een Vrolijk Pasen iedereen!
