Trying to Get Creative Again — New Design and Plans

In spite of having had far more time at home in 2021, I have actually not been feeling the creative spark very often.

However, as the world starts "opening up" again, I am hoping to rekindle whatever has been lying dormant.

Here's a new design I worked on this week:


It still needs to have a final finish coat added, but all in all it turned out pretty well.

All my mandala stones are 100% free hand painted; I use no stencils, drawings or pre-planning. Whatever comes out comes out!

Here's a different perspective.


The stones offer not only attractive small works of detailed art, they are also a great meditation and relaxation exercise while I am making them.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look!

Thank you for supporting independent art!

Because I am trying to make some semblance of income — a living, even — I now add this footer to all my posts, in the hope that someone, somewhere, might decide to take a further look at my work, and perhaps consider supporting independent art.

My Alchemy Stones Patreon appeal, as little as US $1.00 makes a difference!

Of course, your upvote is also greatly appreciated, and it doesn't COST you anything!


I've had a tougher time staying in the zone lately too. I still create a lot, but I have no motivation to follow through with pics and social media posts etc... And then I feel more overwhelmed that I have all that to do and I want to do it even less. SO I create more things, and repeat lol
