Paint Party Friday

It's been awhile again :/ 
No particular reason other than playing with the puppy. It's kind of like having a baby and all of your time goes into caring for it and training it . 
How can you not just want to spend all day long loving on this little sweetie :) 
There has been a wee bit of art done. I made a couple of cards with Mandala's on them. 
The first one I did right before election day. A form of meditation in a way. A pulling together of thoughts and prayers toward a positive outcome in a no win situation. 
The second one was done after the election when the world was shocked by the outcome. 
A prayer for guidance and unity . A gather of forces to stand again what may happen and striving towards a peaceful outcome. 
I've started a third's still in the drawing and deciding stage .
A resurrection of a symbol of my youth to remind myself that this battle has been fought before and can be done again and again until we get it right. 
That we can fix the things that are wrong without destroying the things that are right.
Then on a brighter side the lesson learned today is that I NEED a compass! 
drawing circles with out one is not easy. 
Today's Random Thoughts

A new day is dawning.


  1. Love the mandalas, glad they helped you in times of trouble. Your little Sweetie is wonderful, enjoy being with her. Hugs, Valerie

  2. A great post, Carol. Your mandalas are so very beautiful. Also, thanks for the Thomas Merton quote. I may put that quote on my FB. It is certainly needed today. I enjoyed seeing the beautiful sky photo.

  3. awe, I'd be playing with pup morning to night! We are SO on the fence about another despite the extreme loss of not having our Annie with us any longer. Torn between freedom to travel or committing to staying home mostly...
    your mandalas are just beautiful, and yes, a compass is of immeasurable help:)Happy PPF!

  4. Ohhh I really love these mandalas. Your words are so true. Your puppy is so cute. Have a nice weekend.

  5. The manadalas are so pretty and I enjoyed reading what motivated you to do each one. Yes, the puppy is darling!

  6. Great Mandalas - good that they relax you well! She is such a sweetie!
    Happy T Day and Happy Holidays to you and yours.
