This one is named ‘Kathakali‘ after the Indian dance form of Kathakali.
One of my favorite Tarkan songs is Gün Gibi (Like a day). I love this song. When I was coloring this mandala, I was reminded of that song. Sometimes, some people come to your life like a bright and sunny day.
I was a miserable vagrant
Loneliness of my nights was as cold as ice
My beloved has appeared like a day in pitch black darkness
I had started coloring this mandala during my recent flight to London. I had plans to finish it in one of the parks in London but didn’t get the opportunity to do so. I did, however, manage to spend some time at St. James’s Park one evening coloring this mandala while my friend listened to songs on my iPod. This one I dedicate to the chilly evening at St. James’s Park and the London 2015 trip. It was good to come full circle and end up in the park where I was back in 2003.
So, sometime ago I found Zentangles. Loved them and decided to download some and color them (even though they’re supposed to be in black & white). This is one of those zentangles. I named it Verme coz I was listening to Tarkan‘s song Verme while coloring this zentangle. The song is available at youtube.
