volcanic buddha

A small 3x5 ink drawing on porous paper. The figure of the seated Buddha is the untouched result of ink residues that seeped onto this page from a Buddha drawing on the page above it. Other residues reminded me of a volcano and I added the black outlines and teal background to this page. I like the combination of perfect stillness and volcanic energy that resulted.
