Until the 10th of November (then I will be blogging for one year!) I will be painting and posting a few mini mandalas for the Give Away! Here is the first one. I will let my son Felix pick a winner and that person may choose his or her favorite mini mandala, painted on a 4 x 4 inch canvas. So if you want to participate write a comment! Tot 10 november (dan vier ik 1 jaar bloggen!) zal ik een aantal mini mandala's schilderen en laten zien voor de verloting! Hier is de eerste. Ik laat mijn zoontje Felix een naam trekken van alle mensen die op de mini mandala's hebben gereageerd. De winnaar mag zijn of haar favoriete mini mandala kiezen, geschilderd op een doekje van 10 x 10 cm. Dus wil je kans maken schrijf dan een reactie!

  5. Hi Teri,
    your welcome!

    SB, ik LIJK alleen maar jong....Ik voel me ook nog jong , maar als ik in de spiegel kijk ben ik niet altijd even blij......

    Lisa here is some information about the syllable in the middle
    Aum :also Om or Ohm. ॐ is a mystical or sacred syllable in the Hindu, Jain and Buddhist religions. It is placed at the beginning of most Hindu texts as a sacred exclamation to be uttered at the beginning and end of a reading of the Vedas or previously to any prayer or mantra and also is said in the beginning of any puja (religious ritual).
    I have used this syllable a lot in my mandalas. I just love this symbol
    I have used the Aum symbol also in this mandala and a few others. If you click at the label Aum, you will find more posts and explanations.

    Thanks Julie! Yes I like this combination of purple and blue myself as well....

  6. I would love any of your mandalas! Thanks for the chance to win one.
