Re: Drawing from the right brain
An excellent book, which you may or may not already know about,
"Zen Seeing, Zen Drawing: Meditation in Action
by Frederick Franck
"When the eye wakes up to see again, it suddenly stops
taking anything for granted. The thing I draw, be it a
leaf, rosebush, woman or child, is no longer a thing,
no longer my "object" over and against which i am the
supercilious "subject". The split is healed. When i
am drawing leaf or caterpillar or human face, it is at
once de-thingified. I say yes to its existence.
By drawing it, I dignify, I declare it worthy of total
attention as I am myself, for sheer existence is the
awesome mystery and miracle we share."
many happy cartwheels,
