Doodling as High Art and Heart
My journal doodle
Drawing or doodling as high art as I call it, can tell you many things. It can lead you to places in your mind and heart. Or it can simply be a way to follow your pen or pencil. Like a meditation.
I like to think I predated Zentangles. However, the Zentangle experience is kind of similar. For me each of these is a meditation, and often I will write my feelings before and after the piece is done.
These are a cross between a mandala and a sketch. The circle, sacred in Tantric art, provides a place of safety and an edge where one can play with pencil and inspiration.
