Creation: A Manifestation Of Love

Damienne Ehlenfeldt's avatar Damienne Ehlenfeldt

Watercolor painting 4'x 4' on Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper stretched on a birch panel, painted with Sennelier Watercolors and Twinkling H2O's. I believe that when you think positively you create a more positive world, what you send out into the world you receive back. There is so much negativity in the world today, I wanted to focus on the positive, what I love in the world, what brings me joy. The things that when we are agitated, angry, and frustrated we forget about. The wonder, joy, and miracle that life is. A mandala is used to focus ones thoughts so I created this mandala with the basic form of the seed of life, a universal symbol of creation. The mandala is filled in with images of what I love and what others love too, as I put a request for input out on instagram and facebook. The places, animals, and plants that inspired me to create. I want to have you the viewer help create and grow this mandala by leaving a message of what you love about the world. What inspires you, what brings you joy? Please write what you love on the paper provided and in leave it in the box. I will then randomly select some of your ideas to paint and add around the mandala during ArtPrize, allowing it to grow as we co-create together a more positive world. If you include your email and your idea is selected I will contact you to receive a print of the painting of your idea.
