I gave myself a chuckle today, when I started playing with Marty Deckel's Tints on Tan process. She suggested experimenting on scrap paper before tackling an actual Renaissance tile, so I did...but it really WAS a piece of messy scrap paper and so, when this turned out better than I'd assumed it would, I had to cut it out in order to get a decent photo. This explains the odd line on the lower left (where the cut-out paper ended) and across the left side of the top, where it's lifting off the page. What a fun technique to try though. I look forward to working on an actual tile.
Here comes the heat and humidity again, so I will most likely be hunkered down for a couple of days and (hopefully) doing a fair amount of tangling. I just found out that our house is being insulated (blowing the insulation in thru the walls) over 3 days starting tomorrow...not sure how disruptive that will be. Also not sure I want to find out, but it's not as though there's any choice in the matter! Time to call on the Zen in Zentangle®. Ommmmmmmmmmmmmmm...
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 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!
