Not sure…

I am finished with the black lines but wish I hadn’t started using color. I’ve added more since these photos, but I’ll share that later.

I am not only an artist but a photographer so I will be sharing some of my work here. The first one below is a pokeweed in a series I have entitled After the Harvest.

This is an abstract from a photo I took of my lamp. Weird, right?

Zentangle Inspired Art

Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA) is not “true” Zentangle as it consists of ink/pencil on white square tiles, usually 3″x3″. Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA) can be any size, and incorporate colors if desired.

I really enjoy drawing ZIAs and find it exciting to come up with new creations. Being Disabled and retired, my income is near the poverty line so I am going to try to sell some through my shop on Etsy. We’ll see! Also hope to sell my photography taken in the heart of Appalachia in Southwestern Virginia, USA. I love the land, the people, the culture and mountains here. Beauty is wherever I gaze.

Zentangling All The Way

Standard

I have been learning a way of drawing and doodling called ZenTangling. It is an organized way of doodling/drawing that really appeals to me.

I’m not very experienced at it, so don’t judge 🙂 one of the things I like to do is to have someone close their eyes and draw something without taking their pen off the paper. I then close up the two ends (if needed) and then fill it in with tangles. They start off looking like nothing then they become something cool! I turn them until i see something “appear” – And the “something” that they turn into always relates to the person who drew the line. For example, this one was by someone who loves dogs (I didn’t know!) – the only copy I have is not yet finished one below. When it was done, it looked as if he had a black nose and an adorable hat! She was thrilled.

This is one I have put on a notecard I’ll send to a friend when it is done. I drew it all:

This last one was one I drew entirely, and it was my very first one. I sent it to my friend without taking a photo. She framed it and took a photo for me, so it’s not very clear. I LOVE this pitcher! Every section was symbolic of something pertaining to our friendship.the section without color was filled with letters if the alphabet because we are both book, poetry and word lovers.
