Inspired by Kathryn Costa of 100 Mandalas.
This mandala was used to teach a friend how to draw mandalas and how to use Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils. I have been kind of obsessed with little circles in my mandalas as you will see when I finish 19 of 100. I hope you have a beautiful day.
I have a few more pictures of our trip to Maine and then I will move on to something new. I took over 200 photos in the 3 days we were there and I totally fell in love with the place.

I have not yet run out of photos from our trip to Maine last weekend. I hope you are enjoying them as much as I enjoyed taking them!
This is the Portland Head Lighthouse. There was a Pleine aire painting workshop going on there and that is something I’m adding to my bucket list. It is so beautiful. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
Have a beautiful day.
This journal page layout is kind of a mish-mash of the last week. It includes bits of maps from our trip to Maine, my scratch sheet from my Mandalafest 2016 coloring page, a couple of quotes that came up during the week, and a phrase from a motivational poster I made for my younger son. I added the blue and green grid because I’m loving grids these days! It was painted with my Pelikan watercolors.
The quotes aren’t particularly legible so I combined them with some photos from Ogunquit.
This door was from a church that seemed to be under reconstruction. We discovered it as we got lost going from Albany into Vermont. Fortunately we had to turn around and go back so I was able to check this out a little bit. If you love door photos like I do, check out out Norm 2.0. This week he features photos from a really lovely Abbey in Quebec.
I ran out of steam looking for interesting doors in Portland. I kind of overdid it this weekend and my migraines got pretty bad again. But I was happy to find this lovely red door to share with you. We definitely want to go back to Portland, Maine to explore more!
Places like this always make me think of Cee’s Which Way Challenge!
The views up and down the river were so lovely. This will help you enjoy a little bit of fall color no matter where you live.
And because I’m using this for a “Which Way” challenge I will throw in a photo I took on Route 1 in Maine. For a lot of the drive we just took in all the beauty while listening to an audio-book. Our idea of a fun vacation!
Walking out the breakwater to the lighthouse we thought we were way before sunset. It is kind of dangerous to walk back in the dark. You will see why in the upcoming photos. Totally worth the walk! I loved it so much we came back for sunrise the next morning!
More from Maine tomorrow!
