A new image that I created last night on the iPad.  My intention is to offer a complete set of the 5 jinnas comprising the 5 Buddha mandala here: So far you will find Akshobya, Amoghasiddhi and now Ratnasambhava as well as other figures from the Buddhist tradition.

Elephant and Pink flower garland

Playing with layers in brushes on the iPad continuing the elephant theme - endless possibilities using repetition, mirroring and scale.

Pencil sketches of a sword form and an elephant from my sketchbook

Continuing with my resolve to post monthly on this blog - these two sketches were done the same day and share an intriguing combination of lightness and weight -  I hope my drawings give a sense of these qualities: a feeling of grounding combined with a sense of movement and grace? What do you think?
