Perfectly Present, Felt tip pens on off-white sketch book stock, 6 x 12 inches

Inspired by:

Eight sketched silhouette profiles — each a different sculpted Buddha — from the Sit Investment Gallery.

What does inspiration mean to you?

Drawing each Buddha with “continuous-contour technique” (one is “always looking,” thus one’s pen rarely leaves the sketch page) ends up for the sketcher with, well, imperfect results. On the other hand the process is its own kind of meditation wherein one remains undistracted (and thus perhaps “perfectly present”).
