As the weather turns a little colder and we head into fall and winter it's nice to tuck one's toes into cuddly warm slippers.

And now I can make some more! The great thing about this hobby is that the rocks don't have to clutter up indoor space. They can be left as accents in the garden since they have been treated to be UV and weather resistant.

When I started this mandala I had no idea what direction it would take. I drew guideline circles and divisions in pencil and hours later this had emerged.
It's not perfect, but I find the imperfections add a certain charm and a human touch often missing in a world where so much is mass produced by machines.

Oh no! Another hobby in the making!

My eldest grandchild found this dragonfly lying on their lawn and saved it for me. It's in excellent condition, but with the wings raised he can't easily be placed under glass.
My solution was to prop it in a weighted plastic aquarium plant so now it can sit undisturbed in a doll's roombox.

I've lost track of how many mandalas I've painted on rocks so far, but of them all these are my favourites.
They are by no means perfect and there isn't much special about the layout so I think maybe it's the colours that are calling to me.
The shiny sealant makes the finished rocks difficult to photograph. I'll have to remember to take photos before adding the sealant that allows the painted rocks to be left outside in the garden.
