Showin' Off My Artistic Side

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Last winter I took up playing with pens and drawing, inspired by the books about Zentangle Art. I was immediately struck with the idea to do something like this. It's still a work-in-progress - I'm taking the leaf fronds around the back. And I'm still learning to keep the pens upright ... there's a lot of smearing in this first attempt. Still, I am having a ton of fun with this artistic play.

    I absolutely love it! What a terrific idea (you just shared with me!)
Even if you don't totally fill the shirt, I think less is more, it is looking wonderful. The drawing is exquisite.

    Very nice! I took a Zentangle class, so fun. I've just worked on paper.
If you send this image in to Rick & Maria they might show it on their monthly newsletter. They share other's creativity all the time, it's inspiring to see what all the tanglers are doin' !

    How pretty! Artistic ink like a tattoo but without the long-term commitment! You can change your "body art" at will.
