Most nights after I get in bed I grab my pen and drawing paper. I usually start with a zentangle and often fall asleep mid drawing only to wake up to see a big blob on the page. Still, I do manage to come up with a few finishes I like. I love doing them because they’re so zen – they obviously relax me! And they’re so for art’s sake. Yet I end up thinking that I’ll use them as a basis for another art medium…maybe soon.

Here’ the latest 3…one thing just led to another.

A friend of mine, Jane Dickenson, is very good at this.  In fact, she’s a Certified Zentangle Teacher™  and you can find out more about her and zentangling here: http://www.themindfuldrawer.com/

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
