That was fun!
Oh, the wonders of the web and procrastination! I stumbled upon a lovely website that offers a Zentangle challenge every week. If you have not heard of it, from what I gather, Zentangle-ing is sort of like controlled doodling with a purpose. I have posted a doodle of my own in the past, here . It and its cousins take up pages and pages of handouts and notes given to me during various presentations. I listen, I do. I even pay attention and have questions and comments and things to say about the presentations... but all the while I fill my pages with ink. So, despite not having had any instruction or actually having ever even read any of the many Zentangle books available I thought I might participate in this weekly exercise. I am interested and I am also trying to get my sister interested as well. She is a gifted artist with many different media but has less time to devote to it (and lets face it, she does a better job of cleaning her house than I do!) and tends to need a 'reason', a problem to solve, a purpose even! Hey, procrastination is all the reason I'll ever need! But anyway, this week's challenge appears to be something sunflower inspired. Since the doodle I posted a while back kinda fits that bill I re-worked it in the 3.5" square format of a "tile" and will submit it. Check out the other fabulous 'tangles' at 'I am the Diva'.
