Music Monday – Happy New Year

Few videos are more inspiring for me to watch than time lapse nature photography set to music, and this one seems fitting as the “sunset” on 2017 has come and we celebrate the “dawning” of 2018.  Happy New Year my friends, may it be filled with wonderful, beautiful, inspiring things for you!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

I thought the circular patterns of rust underneath the peeling paint on an electrical pylon I came across the other day was quite unusual, so I stopped to snap a photo of it.  Convenient that the weekly photo challenge this week is unusual, so I can share the unusualness with all of you.  😉

Really though… why is the rust in circular patterns?

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.  😊

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.  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.  But apparently they had downgraded the expected strength of it, and I had no luck.  I did see some gorgeous twinkling stars and the Milky Way though.  😊

Mandala Monday – Earth Tones

I’ve been experimenting with a new color palette over the past few days…

I LOVE  these colors and how this tile turned out!  😍  I used the same mandala design as my favorite one that I shared in my Mandala Madness post (here), but I painted it in earthy tones instead.

 

I also painted a few rocks with these same colors.  I usually paint a background/base color underneath my mandalas (like the brown on the tile above), but I hate covering up the rocks’ natural color, so I painted a few without a base color.  I’m not sure how I feel about how they turned out though, because the mandala’s colors don’t show up as vibrant without a base color.  I was thinking “Earthy paint colors, natural rock color” but it kinda failed.

In actuality, this rock is less gray as it shows in the photo, it’s more of a brown, and it’s prettier in person, but I still think it would have looked better with a base color underneath.

 

Here’s one I painted in all browns and tans…

It works a little better than the other rock without a base color underneath, but I don’t really like the mandala design as much.

 

I know I probably sounds like I’m being overly critical of them, but I really don’t mean to be, I’m just ‘writing out loud’ as I’m processing/learning/seeing what I feel works and what doesn’t as I’m traveling along in my little mandala journey here.  Thanks for traveling with me.

😊

 

I’m still looking for round rocks…

 

Wishing you a happy Monday and a wonderful week ahead.
