some Zentangle fun!
I’m grateful that you stopped by. Check out what else I’m grateful for.
I have been very fortunate this year to have friends to drive me to my many doctors’ appointments and invite me to join in fun activities as I am able. So I decided to send out Thanksgiving Cards as my holiday cards this year. I have been making lots of Zentangle Tiles and people ask me what I do with them and now you can see. They make a lovely accent on a simply painted watercolor card.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a beautiful day.
I love Thanksgiving and I’m hoping it will help me get back into my gratitude practice.
These gratitude journal pages cover most of November. In creating all the art for my current exhibit I fell behind in my gratitude journal. The recent election results give me hope for the future. I just hope that immigrants, people with health problems, those who face economic challenges and all of us who hope to believe in democracy can hold on until the 2018 election.

One of the things that has been keeping me busy lately. I will post it again when it is all done.

“I created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.”
Laura Harms, from IamtheDiva, provides the list of tangle patterns that are suggested for the Zentangle® version of Inktober. She also provides videos of how to draw each pattern. Mine isn’t done yet. I plan to do some shading and probably add color, too. I greatly enjoyed this process and may do this again.
