Where the heck did the week go? If I didn't know better, I would say I had zonked out. But, not true--I did a lot of work in the studio. I don't have too much to show for that as there was a lot of unhooking and rehooking.
After getting home, I had some fun with a tangle that was all-new to me: Zonked. Here was my first take on it (and after that picture, you'll see the inevitable fooling around with the images via my iPhone camera apps).
Indeed, perhaps I did zonk out after all...
This was my first try. I decided to try it three different ways in my "Tangle a Day" calendar, using a regular pencil, an 01 Micron Pen, and shaded with the Rainbow Lead Pencil.
A truly wonderful blog on the meditative effects of Zentangle® is HERE, written by Eni Oken on her experience of doing Zonked in a mindful way.
Below are the images I created with the mirror app and the Waterlogue app on my iPhone.
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 Western Massachusetts. I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.
Come and amaze yourself!
