Sacred Art: Om Mani Padme Hum

Hallo all, welcome to the latest belated update from the laziest blogger in town! I actually painted these quite some time ago, but somehow forgot to photograph them. The mandala patterns in the centre come from a copyright-free book of designs, and the process of drawing/painting them is extremely meditative in itself.

The phrase om mani padme hum is probably the most popular Buddhist chant used for meditation. The actual meaning of the phrase is complicated and multi-faceted, so I will refer you to this website for its meaning.

All together now:

Stay tuned for my series of chakra paintings!

Sacred Art: The Sabbats (Series), Part 2

Welcome to the second installment of pretty watercolour pictures of the Wiccan Sabbats (see part one here)! Sorry for the delay, I’ve been rather busy ‘IRL’, dealing with the horrific administrative clusterfuck that is tertiary education in this state/country.

I’ve already started another mini-series of watercolours, revolving around mandala designs and the meditative chant Om ma ni padme hum. Stay tuned!
