Zen Meditation Chimes

My wise mother gave me these Zen Meditation Chimes.  You hold them in one hand, and rotate them while emptying your mind of all bad thoughts.  They have a tiny chime in each one, and when they knock together, they ring.  I loved the reflective qualities of them as well, so had to draw them.  I chose conte pencil, which is a kind of compressed charcoal.  It usually comes in terracotta, black and white.  I love the feel of the block of conte when I use it.  It flows, builds up, and is a joy.

The reflections on these are cool. I like your drawing style.
