A few weeks ago, I decided to bite the bullet and enter some of my Zentangle work in a juried show. . . it’s local here in Placitas, but a lot of people will see it. It’s called the Placitas Artist Series, or PAS. If accepted, the work of 4 artists will be shown for a month, in conjunction with a concert on one Sunday of the month. Well. . . ta da! My work was accepted! I’ve done that show before with my scroll saw work, but had to set up and take it down the day of the concert. A lot of work for about 3 hour show. So this will be much more fun. Who knows how well it will go over, it’s not the usual kind of artwork they have, so we’ll see. Anyway, it’s not until next March, so I have plenty of time to work on my tangles, and maybe some ZIA’s as well.
So, to celebrate, I bought a new set of pens at Office Max, they’re uni-ball vision elite blx. They say ‘black ink infused with color’. Four pens, fine point. Like I need more pens. . . must have a hundred of them. But then, some people call me obsessive about certain things. . . who me? I’ve run out of plain zt tiles, but found a set of pre-strung tiles that I’ve had for a year or so and used one of them. That was fun, not having to decide on a string. . . here’s the result:
Staring: marasu, black pearls, gingham, rixty and something with no name. . . around the marasu.
and a tile I did after the ZT201 class, on my last blank tile. . . to wind down and relax. . . (not to worry, have more tiles coming. . . ha!)
tangles used: fassett, maisie, logjam, divadance, sandswirls, gingham, paradox, panthe
Think I’ve had gingham on my mind. . . did so much knightsbridge, practicing to teach it for class, that this seems like a nice alternative. Love how forgiving it is if the lines aren’t quite straight and has a soft feel to it, like the cloth it resembles. Thanks for reading! Love to see your comments!
