Do you know what ZEN is?
In Buddhist teachings it defines the states of consciousness and deep understanding that spring from meditative focusing.
It is not very easy to explain, as I'm at the beginning of trying to understand this practice.
I first had a glimpse of Zen and Art when I found this wonderful website called ZENTANGLE. Before, I had tried meditation and visualization for creating Art, but it's with tangles and doodles that I have found my true inspiration and path.
This is a work of patience and, luckily, I'm very patient when it comes to things that require focusing. And it also gives you time to concentrate on many aspects of your life. This stream of thoughts can result into decisions, solutions or simply peace of mind.
I'm always been a very nervous individual, in physic and mental ways.
Making my Zen Drawings makes me feel relaxed and in peace with myself.
What about you? Do you feel Zensational when you make Art?
For SWEET SATURDAYS and SUNDAY SKETCHES today I would like to introduce you a new kind of Zen Dolls. This one will be used for ZEN DOLLS PROJECT (click for info). I'm waiting for my sister to write a presentation, and then I'll set up a blog page where you can read info and news.
I would also send a HUGE THANK YOU to my blogfriend Stacy of MAGICLOVE CROW for her amazing support!!
