Beth of Mossberry Cottage is our challenge host at Inspiration Avenue this week.

She chose Mandalas as the theme, and it just happens I've been taking a
class on mandalas at Guada's Circle, so the timing is perfect...

( Click the button in my sidebar to visit Guada's Circle )>>>

I don't generally paint mandalas, but this turned out to be fun,
and I learned so much from Guada. 
I'm looking forward to doing another one.

I think I may not be finished with it, it seems to need a bit more...

In progress:
Finished. For now :)

And speaking of mandalas . . .
Look what I received from my friend 
Kat, of Wright Story!

Kat is a writer, painter of mandalas, my Round Robin sister,
and former Inspiration Avenue member.
I just love this pendant with one of Kat's mandalas under glass!
Thank you Kat!

So sorry the above pictures are not the best.
I'm waiting for the gray days to give way to some sunshine,
but it's just not happening! My photos are suffering...

Pop over to Inspiration Avenue.
There's still time to enter the challenge!



  1. I love your Mandala. Some day I will learn how to paint one. Great job!

  2. Oh, I love these soft colours, Maggie!

  3. Your mandala is just lovely! The colors were beautifully selected! I just learned of that course and plan to check it out when I have a little more time!

  4. I love your mandala - you have managed to achieve a beautiful depth to it. Stunning colours too. x

  5. Gorgeous mandala- I LOVE all the movement you've created here- LOVE it!

  6. Nice mandela you made and the glass piece you won is lovely!

  7. Thta's my problem with mandalas also... I never know exactly when to quit!

  8. This is beautifully done. I love the variations in tone and the fine details. Your necklace is wonderful too!

  9. I like your mandela a lot. I like them but don't seem to have the knack for doing them. Maybe I'll explore them more.


  10. So pretty Maggie, both your painting and the necklace.

  11. Maggie, wow! I love your mandala... isn't Guada awesome?! I love the way the black pen work seems to bring everything together!

  12. A very belated thank you very much for buying one of my mandala necklaces & blogging about it. Sorry for the delay but as you know I was offline for a few weeks whilst ill. I Love your mandala - it seems to leap up off the page in 3D layers - very clever & beautiful!
