My First Zentangle Show!

My First Zentangle Show!

It’s been kind of exciting around here the past couple of days because of the strong winter storm we’ve had.  It’s not anywhere near what they’ve had in the northeast or other places, but a few inches of snow around here is pretty amazing.  It took me more than an hour to get home last night, only a few miles.  And it was scary! So. . . wasn’t sure if we would be able to get out this morning to go hang my first ever Zentangle show.  But the county did a great job and was out on our road plowing and sanding, so we made it.  It’s called the Placitas Artist Series and the artwork of 4 artists hangs for one month. The third Sunday there’s a concert and beforehand, the artists reception.  I was able to pick out 22 pieces of my art and have them professionally framed, or I framed them, and this is what it looks like with the panorama view on my iPhone:

Of course the wall is not curved, the panorama view makes it looks fish-eyed.  Cool effect tho. If you click on the picture you get a full screen view.

All of the art at the show is for sale with a percentage going to the Artist Series.  A great cause.  They bring wonderful local art and beautiful music to our rural area.  My husband helped with the layout, naming the pieces and hanging them today! He’s a great roadie.  My sister made my beautiful flyers, business cards and also helped with the layout.  I’m so lucky to have such a wonderful, supportive and talented family!

Thanks for checking in!

 

 

Great Classes

Great Classes

Well finally a new post.  It’s been a while.  My sister, Karin, and I taught 2 wonderful classes on Saturday in Albuquerque.  The morning was Zentangle 101 to a very creative group. It was such fun to see what they did with the tangles.  And in the afternoon we taught our first Zentangle 601 class to our special group of ladies who have taken all or almost all of our classes.  We have such a good time with them.  And we even had time at the end to take a group picture! So here are the tiles from 101, 601 and the class photo.

Please check out the Classes page and see all the new classes we have scheduled in January and February.  If you live in the Albuquerque, NM area, we’d love to have you come and join us for a whole lot of fun.  Start with the Basics class and continue all the way through our newest class: Zentangle 601: Renaissance Tiles.  If you have taken at least the ZT101 class, you can join our classes in any order at any time.  We have classes in Santa Fe and Albuquerque westside so far.  Look for classes on the east side coming soon!

The PayPal button has been fixed so that you can now change the quantity if you want to sign up more than one person for a class.

Here’s a tile I did last month.  Happy New Year!!

Zentangle 501 Class – Organic Tangles

Zentangle 501 Class – Organic Tangles

We had a blast Saturday making some Zentangle Gardens.  It was our first 3 hour class and the time went by so fast.  We taught a lot of new tangles, and got started putting them on gray toned Strathmore sketch paper.  Some got farther along than others, but some of the scratch sheets had beautiful drawings on them as well.  Just so pleased to see what everyone has done.  We spent quite a long time putting this class together because we didn’t want to disappoint our wonderful students who have been to all of our classes!  Here’s a pic of the tangled gardens when we made them quit so we could look at all of them together.

Looks like the consensus for the next class is Renaissance Tiles.  We’ll do some sepia, black and white on the tan tiles.  Can’t wait to put that one together.  Here’s a sample of what we might do:

This is a very fun look to create, very satisfying.

We are working with Bob’s Sewing and Vacuum to schedule our next ZT101 class so we can get new students interested in the Zentangle method.  But we’ll put this Renaissance class in the schedule soon.  We also have some classes scheduled in Santa Fe starting in January, so please check the Classes page regularly as we update it as new classes are scheduled.

Oh, and hope everyone has a great holiday, however you may celebrate it.  And a wonderful New Year to all.
