Air to Breathe

Yellow mandala in a series of 4. This mandala represents the element air, or the movement of breath in connection to the air around us. Air Is invisible, but necessary for life. I focus upon my breath as I draw the mandala, promoting well-being through breath work. Today, we all realize how important breathing really is! The mandala is a meditation practice of remaining still with the art, beginning with a center dot (representing centering the mind) and moving outward in pattern. A mandala is quite personal, no two are ever alike. The attempt to makes designs symmetric without measuring is also a part of the practice. In this manner, I strive for balance and evenness. The background is airbrushed, the design is with acrylic marker. Acrylic, 24” x 24”
