Although it’s doubtful I’m in compliance with the rules of Zentangling, I find it both calming and satisfying. Not so much the black-and-white drawing, because it’s hard for me to come up with new ways to move the pen, but I enjoy the color part: selecting color combinations and then feeling the flow of the ink. I loved coloring books as kid; this lets me indulge in that childhood pleasure.
Next, I think I’m ready to try scaling them up to postcard size.
Between a week at the Texas coast with the grand-kids, a one-day turnaround trip to Arlington, recent lunch and dinner guests and now awaiting grandson today and granddaughter tomorrow, I’ve squeezed in some new work. My knitting is suffering, but at least I’m feeding the art bug.
I would absolutely love to get into a mail art exchange. If you are interested, or know of exchanges, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
