I am participating in the Sketchbook Challenge, which begins this month for 16 months. The theme for this month’s challenge is “Highly Prized”. For this theme, I decided to focus on time. The older I get, the more precious time is. It’s a non-renewable resource, and I try to use it as best I can.
This two-page spread contains some thoughts and quotes about time and art. The background of the left page is done with a Derwent Inktense pencil, there are several collage pieces, and some Zentangle patterns done in pen & ink. (Click the image for a larger view.)
As I mentioned previously, I will be attending the Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) workshop in October. If you are interested in Zentangle art, or classes, you can follow my new blog, Zentangle Harmony.
Last year I discovered Zentangles, a method for creating images from repetitive pattern. It’s a rather meditative activity, and can quickly become addictive. Here is a slide show of my first Zentangles.
I’m finding ways to incorporate Zentangles in my art, playing with various ways to colorize them. Stay tuned.
