Drawing homes is my new form of meditation. I get lost in building the structure slowly, line after line. I could do this forever...
I don't usually drink hot coffee unless it is Ice in frappe style lol. This was done using watercolors that I thought somewhat matched the color of coffee. Since the subject was meditation I sort of just let my mind wander and didn't plan anything.
Lately after my daily meditations, I've been asking if an angel or my soul wants to tell me something. This is what came to me today.
As a professional energy healer, I listen to guided meditations most days. This is a phrase from one of my favorite meditations.
Black and white, graphite (pencil) drawing. (Second rendering of this image.)
I have many forms of meditation, or at least a moment of total peace where mind is absolutely clear - and sketching is one of them!
Was truly a meditation making this.
In wanting to get active with my fellow doodler community, I wanted to stop in and introduce myself. My name is Dalton Stark, I live in Texas, and i'm a doodle addict, and an advocate for the possibility of anything. For me, doodling is my purest state of being human. My sketchbooks are a very sacred place for me to practice this expressive and arcane form of imagination meditation, which I'm always trying to find more excuses to spend more time in. It is to me, all about intuition, making discoveries, surprising yourself, having fun and maybe even making yourself and others smile or laugh sometimes. I look forward to being a part of this beautiful inky ecosystem with y'all, here are some very secret sketchbook spreads.
Just drop in the watercolor in different value and mixing of limited palette. It’s very meditating and an excellent watercolor exercise.

"Why are you so enchanted by this world? When a mine of gold lies within you?" ~ Rumi
yoga, skateboarding, meditation, mantras, mudras (this one helps a hurt back), native american prints, yin-yang. just some of the mystical things i'm inspired by.
Another one for MightCouldDrawToday! This week is Bears and I drew a cute bear from a photo reference I found. Lined with a Tombow Fudenosuke marker and colored with my Derwent Inktense Pencils. My sketchbook really can't handle the water! >.
Having difficulty with the feet. Work in progress...
Blocked out values and form for a work in progress. I haven't drawn or painted in a while, so critiques are welcome before I dive in further with this. Ultimately, I'm looking to incorporate a quote on meditation with the finished piece.
Meditation with cats
Work in progress continues. I'm having trouble with the hands.
The Third Sorrowful Mystery: The crowning with thorns.
"Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the praetorium, and they gathered the whole battalion before him. And they stripped him and put a scarlet robe upon him, and plaiting a crown of thorns they put it on his head, and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him they mocked him, saying, 'Hail, King of the Jews!"' (Mt 27:27-29).
"It is love 'to the end' (Jn 13:1 ) that confers on Christ's sacrifice its value as redemption and reparation, as atonement and satisfaction. He knew and loved us all when he offered his life" (CCC, 616).
Our Father, 10 Hail Marys (contemplating the mystery), Glory be to the Father.
