Are you familiar with Rangoli – an Indian Folk Art ?  I find it to be an interesting art form that is inspirational.  Have you been lucky enough to visit India and see this Folk Art being made?

Wikipedia desribes: Rangoli as an art form from India in which patterns are created on the floor in living rooms or courtyards using materials such as colored rice, dry flour, colored sand or flower petals. It is usually made during Diwali (Deepawali), Onam, Pongal and other Indian festivals. Designs are passed from one generation to the next, keeping both the art form and the tradition alive.

I found this Youtube video to capture the beauty of this art, as well as share a little pespective on how it is made.

I hope you are having a wonderful summer and finding time to enjoy and create.
