Time Lapse - Intuitive Mandala Process

Sometimes an intuitive painting is all I need to overcome some major creative blockages.

I was experiencing a serious creative block last weekend.. I planned on painting, but nothing was coming out right! So I decided to do an intuitive painting to clear out some creative blockages.

Instead of painting what I saw in my head, I chose to paint an intuitive mandala. I decided to try a time lapse video to help me get a handle on filming for my upcoming e-courses! I can't wait to share my process in my online classes! 

I wasn't sure where this was going with this, but tried to keep the painting moving outward, to help move blockages out. 

The colors started out really blue and cold, but as I kept working I was feeling more drawn to the oranges and yellows, which help stimulate the Sacral Chakra.

By the end of the painting I was reminded that the darker times, and the "blues" in life serve us very well. They act as a contrast for us to remember just how bright the sun can shine.

Then of course I added stars and galaxies into the darkest areas of the painting, and a "barely" there mandala to help guide the eyes and energy outward. 

Painting a mandala can be extremely soothing and meditative, which in turn makes the mandala soothing to look at as well. This one was created with the intention of unblocking creative energy. 

I'll be adding the original and prints to the shop this New Moon in my shop update. Along with tons of other originals and illustrations that I've been putting off... because once I got this painting out,  the creative juices have been flowing!
