Zen and the art of drawing.

Both zen and drawing are about love-imbued investigative curiosity. In drawing we are constantly noticing how our perceptions are not quite matching the reality of the subject and strive to bring them ever closer. In zen our perceptions of reality are also for the most part made up in our minds and we move closer to whats going on here and now.

When we just draw, letting go of all our doubts and inner dialogue, we bring rigorous care to reveal the beauty and wonder of what we see, whether it is a human model or a simple object like a cup.

When we just sit, letting go of all our doubts and inner dialogue, taking up the simple posture of 'zazen', legs crossed and mind attentive, we perceive the awe-inspiring nature of our own mind and become calm and aware.

Both are active engagement with reality as-it-is.
