The coloring process has begun. 

When I first starting making these mandalas, I was able to complete the coloring in just a couple of sessions. 
I now find that I enjoy taking my time and moving more slowly and intuitively which gives more detailed results. 

It is my observation that when I first start making mandalas, I was so exciting with the results that I went through the process more quickly.  But as I gained understanding and experience in making them, I was able to slow down and get more into the process of creating it and concentrate less on the final outcome.   

Take a look at how this mandala
is beginning to tranform through color.

We are happy to let you know,
another workshop has been scheduled
at the wonderful Hummingbird and the Honey Bee Bookshop
in Thousand Oaks, California. 

When you walk into their shop,
you are greeting with a energy that is both lively and calming.  There is much to look at as their displays of books, products,
 cards, jewelry and so much more 
are beautifully displayed and inviting to purchase.

And I am fortunate enough to be able to offer my workshop
in one of their private meeting rooms.  
It will be two days of learning, playing, sharing, and expanding
your world in a safe, fun and productive environment.

Here are the specifics:

Our workshop is set up in two sessions
with homework to complete and use in the second session. 
These sessions are four hours each with a short break in the middle.  
At that time a little snack is offered to tide you over to the end of class. 
Eating a good breakfast is recommended before coming to class
to help your energy and focus levels. 
We will be covering a lot of information 
so exercises are given at the end of each section
to help you apply what was just talked about and ask questions. 
This will help build your understanding and confidence 
for when you make the larger mandala (12" X 12")
and your homework assignment. 

When you register for the workshop,
you will be forwarded a short and simple exercise to do
prior to the first session in preparation of the workshop.

 If you have any questions regarding any aspect of the workshop,
please do not hesitate to contact me --
