I try to incorporate art into my everyday life, even if its finishing off, adding to a drawing that I’m working on or just scribbling a random pattern with oil pastels. I find drawing an outlet for my feelings. Just looking at the colours spread in front of me settles my mind.
I tend to go into deep thought mode when drawing. Little things like drawing a flower or bumble bee leads on to a chain of wondering. And things like reading Ayaat of the Quran or Hadith make me want to put words into a picture.
I have a Moleskine notebook (and a couple for backup) which I use. Its a perfect size for slipping into my bag or pocket of my raincoat when I go on walks. I want to share with you all some of my doodles, drawing and paintings. I’ll try and post at least one drawing a week.
Let me know what you think. What type of art are you guys into? What do you do that helps settle your mind? Comment below 🙂
