Art Everyday Challenge-Day 14

Day 14? What happened to the other 13 days?
Yes, I know. I'm getting a little bit of a late start on this. November is Art Everyday Month is hosted by Leah Piken Kolidas and is a way to challenge yourself to be creative, in some way, everyday. My friend Marie had such a great time with it last year and is doing it again this year. With her encouragement, I am getting in on the fun :-)

So I will mostly be blogging about this challenge this month.

I signed up Thursday, Friday I got some strange flu that lasted through Saturday. So here I am Sunday ready to go! The humorous thing was that what I was most inspired to do was draw mandalas using the Reiki symbols that I have learned in training. But because they are sacred symbols, I cannot post them. *sigh*

So I drew a pattern for my intent to have positive forward movement in my life. It was not my favorite but that's ok. The other two were done a couple of weeks ago.

The first one is to inspire love in all areas of life to flow freely to me and the second one was to inspire abundance and prosperity.

I love to draw mandalas, at least that's how I think of them. They are a way to let my mind wander and let the intention guide me to choose the colors and shapes that I put to paper. It is so calming and therapeutic.

Give it a try if you never have and let me know how it felt for you. What came up? What emotions or blocks surfaced, if any? And most importantly, HAVE FUN with it!


  1. They're very pretty, I could see how they would be therapeutic, nice work!

  2. Hope you are feeling better!

    I love how spontaneous these are. My clay guild is doing a challenge with a technique called Mokume Gane and I am learning a lot about letting the clay guide me. It is a beautiful technique but hard to "control." That is a big step for me.

  3. great work - and I love the tub hair idea - just marvelous...

    do come and play at Whimsical Wednesday - more here:
