Just a quick experiment this evening in my Tangle-a-Day calendar. I'm really liking this new-to-me tangle called Deco Burst by Debbie Gray, a CZT from group 19.
This is my first try at it. Done with a Micron 01, Rainbow Lead Pencil, and some rather unsightly-looking blobs on the inner tips (Signo Uniball White Pen). The blobs were supposed to be sharp points, carefully placed on the tips, but forget about that! I am too tired and can't see straight. Hence they are blobs, but they look almost as I intended if I keep the photo this size.
I really enjoyed doing this as a form of decompressing after two crazy-busy days. Yesterday was a very long quiet drive to another part of the state to enjoy lunch with two much-loved friends. Today was a long session in the studio, with a break for a lunch with another much-loved friend, and a LOT of walking.
Bone-tired, but happy tonight.
I always felt that the great high privilege, relief and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
No immediate group classes scheduled (I'm always open to hearing about a good venue in the Cambridge-Somerville area). I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.
Come and amaze yourself!
