Art as Therapy

9th August 2023 Mr Nandakumar


I drew Buddha from a photo my friend sent me from Vietnam. I have attempted to capture the constant serenity that you always see in a Buddha image. Whether it’s a sculpture, a photo or a painting. The unique essence of calmness exudes from Buddha’s face.


I hope my attempt at drawing Buddha with pen and pencil has captured that calm spirit. We all need some form of calmness many times in our lives. I had a great sense of peace when I drew this image. It was a great therapy session for me. I hope you enjoy my drawing and this little description.


I will end with a Buddhist quote:

“ Falling is part of life.

Getting back up is part of living.”
