I have long been inspired by people
who can draw the most gorgeous mandalas
(check out this flickr group)
I have been researching them over the past few weeks,
as I haven't wanted to create art
except on my couch.
I figured a pen and this cute little moleskine I just bought
would probably be ok to do on the couch.
As pretty as they can be,
it seems many people were going on about how
soothing it was to make them.
I need as much therapy as I can get! haha
I also am a "struggling" doodler.
It doesn't come all that naturally to me,
and I figured that if I keep trying to draw
mandalas, maybe it will loosen me up.
So, here is my first serious one I tried.
At first I just felt frustrated that I suck at trying to think
about what to draw next.
My mind is amazing at going blank when I
force it to think about the next step.
After awhile, I realized that it IS
soothing to create a shape and
just go around in a circle and repeat it.
I think I am a believer
