Art History Month Part 3

Ok let’s have a whirlwind tour of my last complete sketchbook and be done with this painful business. I started this one in December and finished it in May. These first sketches are from our Christmas performance evening. Phap Dan said that they look like people from the French Old Regime. Occasionally I throw some color into the mix, even though color is confusing and terrifying.

I was pretty much melting down all Winter Retreat. It’s usually the most stressful and foreign-feeling time for me here, and I was heaping on all kinds of other unnecessary negativity to spice things up a little. I’ve learned to grab some time alone with drawing… even if I’m with people, to open up a little space. It’s not the same as sitting meditation, but it gives me something productive to do with all my energy.

Ok I’ll just let the rest speak for themselves.

One thought on “Art History Month Part 3

  1. beautifully artistic!
    i understand about having
    difficult moments in PV or Deer Park.
    I’ve also benefited from the wise advice
    to find guidance from a counselor
    who is trained to help transform
    emotional health patterns 🙂
