Mandala Monday – Peacock Feathers

The outer edges of this one remind me of peacock feathers…

Not to mention, the background color paint that I used was called “peacock” blue. ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

Once I had painted around the edges like that, I couldn’t figure out a way to fill in the rest of the canvas without taking away from the main mandala design, so I left it plain.

I hope your Monday is off to a great start. ย Mine is starting out sleepy, because I went on a midnight drive out of the city last night to try to see the aurora borealis, as it was supposed to be visible here in Minnesota. ย But apparently they had downgraded the expected strength of it, and I had no luck. ย I did see some gorgeous twinkling stars and the Milky Way though. ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. Very fun and pretty Julie. I’m glad you’re still having fun with the mandalas. I saw some stones painted as ladybugs that reminded me of your mandalas. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks, Brad, I am still enjoying painting my mandalas. ๐Ÿ˜Š Ladybugs would be cute, I’ve seen rocks painted as so many interesting and beautiful things. I’m still on the lookout for round stones – mandalas being circular just don’t work as well when the rocks aren’t round. So for now I’m mostly painting them on tiles and mini canvases. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Another beautiful piece! I had considered heading to PA last night to catch the lights but didn’t make it. Glad you got to enjoy the stars! ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • Thanks Dorinda! I enjoyed the stars, but I was pretty disappointed that the auroras didn’t make a showing, it sounded like such a sure thing. Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? I saw them once by accident while I was living out in the country and had gotten up during the night for a glass of water. I was standing there drinking my water and looking out my front kitchen window when I noticed the sky looked greenish. It was pretty exciting and cool to see! ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Beautiful Jewels! Love the vibrant colours and intricate pattern. Like you I. am hanging out to see the amazing southern lights, the Aurora Australis but never in the right place when it shows

    I heard of the aurora too late (rats!) but I did see the exquisite sunrise. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I’m so glad you’re loving them Eliza, thanks so much! ๐Ÿ™‚
      As soon as I heard that it was going to be clear skies and a good chance of seeing them, I made plans to get out of the city to go have a peak at them, but they never showed, it was pretty disappointing. I really did enjoy the stars though, and I loved being out in nature in the dark in the middle of nowhere, it was wild and primal and mystical. โค
