In this mudra, the thumb and index finger touch as if picking up a very tiny object, such as a grain of truth. This is a symbol for spiritual understanding.
Dharmachakra completed! This was fun to do, I’m really enjoying the smaller format and the tighter focus on hands. Hands are so expressive and they can be as individual as faces. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do. 🙂
This will be the first in a series of hand mudra poses, so check back soon for updates. You can read more about Buddhist hand mudras in my last post.

Finished drawing for the next painting. This one was a bit more complicated than I originally thought it would be, but I’m satisfied with how it turned out.
The inspirations for these next few paintings are Buddhist hand mudras.
This one is the Dharmachakra mudra, symbolizing the continuous flow of energy in the cosmos. For the background, my plan is to create a spiral of stars in a dark field of color.
