Doodling as High Art and Heart

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.
