Paint a Sea Mandala on a Vinyl Record - Creative Meditation

I love painting mandalas, but have been puzzled on how to find a substrate that is round. There aren't a lot of round canvases out there that are affordable. I was in my Half Priced Book Store and saw the cheap records there and then the light bulb when off. Why not use records for my mandala paintings? 

We recently moved from Alberta, Canada to Houston, Texas. So I'm recently inspired by all the sleepy beach towns here on the gulf coast. So that's how the sea theme came about.


I love the kaleidoscope of repetitive imagery in mandalas. And how they can be a meditative process to create. The shapes can be simple but when put together they form something very magical.
