Happy Mother’s Day 2015

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. . .

Mom. . . she would be 90 on May 18. Miss her so much.

Mom's birthday 5/18/14

we had some fun. . . at her expense. . . last year on mom’s birthday. But she enjoyed her day and was a good sport.

Lots of news!

Lots of news!

It’s been a while since I posted.  A lot of things have happened, some good, some not so much. . . so I want to talk about some of the good things!  We had a special class on Saturday, a family of 3 generations!  and some friends, old and new attended our Zentangle 101- The Basics in Bernalillo, NM at a new venue for us. As usual, we got so caught up in teaching and seeing the wonderful tiles they were creating that we forgot to take pictures of the class, but we did get pics of the tile mosaics and here they are:

Tile 1

Tile 1-ZT101

The youngest students were 9 and 10, sisters. It was just amazing to watch them take to Zentangle. As always, the mosaic of all the tiles is so much fun to see, for us and for the class.

The second tile:

Tile 2

Tile 2 – ZT101

We can’t wait to introduce them to Bijou, Black tiles, Renaissance tiles and organic tangles in future classes. Imagine what the mosaics of those classes will look like.

On another nice note:  I was fortunate to be accepted into two juried art shows in March and April.  In Placitas, I was able to hang 23 Zentangle pieces for the month.  Here’s a picture of me with a few of the pieces at the artists’ reception.

Four of my pieces were also accepted into MasterWorks of NM juried art show, which was quite a wonderful surprise. The show hung in Albuquerque for the month of April, and much to my surprise again, one piece was awarded a 3rd place prize in the Miniature Pen & Ink category.
