Looking back over 2012

Here are some of my highlights of 2012.  I am not organised enough today to write a blog post about the year so, I'm posting some photos of the highlights.
After having looked through my photos I am amazed at what has happened this year.

My brush with fame at Salamanca Place Hobart.  
Master chef was filming for the latest series
Vision board I created.  
By the way, I did drop a dress size but gained the weight back.  
So, I know I can lose weight!!

Piece of art I created to remind me who I am

I did this painting after watching a video tutorial by Cheryl Urwin

 Another piece of art from a video.  
I can't remember who the tutor was for this piece.

Well it is nearly the end of the year and what a year it has been.

I have had my ups and downs with health issues, nothing serious just the usual 
aches and pains associated with aging.  
I have accomplished many things this year but alas, I still haven't 
joined a yoga class.
I have however started to meditate regularly.  If I don't do a physical meditation
I always do an active meditation like create a mandala.

I have rediscovered the meditative process of Mandalas.  Creating Mandalas is such a relaxing, peaceful and satisfying pass time.  these Mandalas are drawn with a black ink pen then coloured using Daler Rowney Pearlescent Liquid Acrylic Ink.  This is the first time I have used these beautiful silky inks and I can tell you it won;t be the last time.  They are $10+ a bottle but are very economical to use.  one drop goes such a long way and if mixed with water they stretch even further.

Quick Mandala

I felt in the mood to draw a Mandala this afternoon.  I added some paint to the paper then spread on gold paint with a credit card, I am happy with the end result.  I decided to try a free hand design using black pen then I used white ink and coloured pencils to add the finishing touches.
