This week I finished a commissioned mandala I had to paint for Demi.
Just in time for her birthday tomorrow.
It was a lot of work to paint those 7 hummingbirds, but a joy as well.
I have used them in several of my mandalas and ATC´s before and you can read its meaning here.

Demi is born the 30th of March so in the middle I painted a yellow triangle , symbol of femininity  and water. Surrounded by 3 daffodils. 
Daffodils have meanings of faith, honesty, truth, forgiveness, and forthrightness. They are ever vigilant in returning each spring, and with their return we are reminded that their beauty is capable of following on the shirttails of even the harshest winters.
How true that is at this moment!
We have some daffodils in the garden they are trying hard to kick off Spring.
It is still Winter here. This is the longest winter I can remember so far.
We had 2 Spring days 5 and 6 March and then Winter came back.
Well next week the temperature will go up a little :)

Have a wonderful weekend
