The Light of Creativity

The very fragrant and beautiful Witch Hazel was the inspiration

The way we bring our light into the world is through our creativity.

We express our light in all we do. Our light shines most brightly when we are centered and connected to the source of our inner light.

One of my favorite books is titled Creativity, by Matthew Fox. In it he states: “Is any place more intimate than the place where we create?… Creativity is intimate because it is us most truly, spontaneously and totally.”

Matthew Fox continues, “Creativity is not a noun or even a verb – it is a place, a space, a gathering, a union, a where – wherein the Divine powers of creativity and the human power of imagination join forces.”

Fox continues, ” Creativity constitutes the ultimate in intimacy, for it is the place where the Divine and the human are most destined to interact.”

Fox also states: “We are creators at our very core. Only creating can make us happy, for in creating we tap into the deepest powers and self and universe and the Divine Self.”

The mandalas in this blog were created during my most recent mandala circle.   The shining light of all those who come to my studio and create always inspires me beyond words.  Most of the mandalas created here were done with iridescent paint.  The photos don’t show all the light reflecting off the pages.


Please share the mandalas and art journaling you create by sending an email with attachments of your art. Please use a high resolution – which can be a smart phone camera – with enough surroundings in the photo.  I can easily crop the image.  Please send to linda (at)  Please use the @ sign and no spaces.
