Mandala: 27 December

Finished coloring the mandala which I made using one of my stamps:


Sorry for the light… It did not want to be photographed under natural light: the whole piece had a blue tone, including paper, and I could not get rid of it. The artificial light actually helped in this case… Weird…

Anyway, if you would like to color this one, please go here and download it.

Mandala: 25 December 

I finished it several days ago but waited for some light to take a photo. It was raining in the morning but it cleared now so I grabbed my phone and made a shot.

It was a nice Christmas Eve but a bit too much food, as usual. But that’s ok 😊

I hope you are enjoying your holidays!

Mandala: 14 December

I finished coloring the mandala I drew two weeks ago.


I used mostly water-based markers. I did some details with gold gel pen and white acrylic ink (which could not stay white because of markers bleeding through, but I am fine with that).

Here is a detail:


I got the cold from Mother, so today I am nursing my sore throat with garlic, honey and tea. I feel sad and worried about how I will drive to Munich tomorrow. I hope I will feel better…

Mandala for Coloring: 13 December

I used one of my #carveDecember stamps to see how it could be incorporated into a mandala. Frankly, I rarely use stamps in my art, and as I like carving them, it’s pity. So I am trying to find a way to use them more. I think this may work:


Otherwise, I am having Day 1 migraine and trying hard to pretend it’s nothing. I feel cold and miserable and hardly wait for a couple more hours to go by and to go to sleep hoping that tomorrow I will be better (although I know that I won’t because it will be only Migraine Day 2). On the more positive note Mother is feeling better, so I will not have to cancel our trip on Thursday.


Mandala Coloring in Progress

This is the one I posted two days ago. I started coloring but will not finish it soon because I travel today and won’t take it with me. There is another unfinished one waiting for me for next week though.

Last night we went out to Christmas Market in the center but that was a mistake as the streets were so crowded that we could barely walk. We did not see much and we didn’t get any food or wine because we didn’t want to cue for it. So we went back to our local market and had food and wine there. Maybe we will try again but choose a working day instead of weekend.

Today is sunny and warm. I went for a run and now I will be packing and leaving. Great day for a drive…

Mandala for Coloring: 9 December


I drew this one on an A3 sheet of paper, so I cannot scan it, as my scanner is A4. I hope it will print well from the photo, if someone is interested to have a go. I started coloring it today. It will be a long process…

It’s Friday and all my unpleasant errands are done or cancelled and I am still alive. YAY! It was one hell of a week, but I handled it all well and I am very happy with myself. Yesterday afternoon we met a friend of mine for dinner. We went to a place called Dallas, an American-style diner with huge burgers and great steaks. I always take the same burger and it’s big and juicy and makes me incredibly satisfied (and just a bit guilty). That’s the thing with me: when I find a meal I like in a restaurant, I always eat that one. Sometimes I even decide to try something else, but when the moment comes to order, I order the same old… Afraid to get disappointed and stay hungry, I guess. LOL!
