Equipped with my new marker set, I started coloring this mandala. Started with the inner ring colored in green, followed by the next ring of beads (red & blue). The finished product surprised me as I wasn’t expecting this mandala to turn out so good. I felt happy at seeing the fruits of my labor . Sometimes, when you least expect, life surprises you.. pleasantly. What made this mandala even more interesting was the fact that my neighbor’s daughter was with me making her own pics. We shared the markers and enjoyed each other’s company. Maybe that is why I chose the colors I chose, and the mandala ended up the way it did.
