Fourth of July Fireworks

Not sure what this Zentangle® thing is? You can read more about it here. This week the Zentangle Diva challenged us to share a composition that reflects our home. The tile she shared featured the Canadian Maple Leaf. The fact that we celebrated July 4th had me thinking of my national home. The Fourth of July […]

Zentangle Diva Challenges – Insomnia Edition

November 10, 2016 19 comments

(New to Zentangle, start here.) It’s November 10th, three days after the USA shocked over half of it’s voters (and all of the pundits) by electing you know who. I’m still too numb to mention his name. I was intending to write a therapeutic blog post about our election after having been consumed by it […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #289 – “Ahoy Thar” Edition

October 18, 2016 16 comments

Once again I was MIA for another week. This is becoming a disturbing unfortunate habit. I’m going to blame it on watching too much TV coverage of the United States’ election and thus becoming paralyzed with depression. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. After November 8th, I’ll have to come up with another […]

Dawn over the Atlantic enroute to Dublin.

Thank you to all who participated in the Zentangle Diva challenge last week when I was the guest Diva. I saw some very nice work interpreting my theme, Give Peace a Chance, and I was comforted to see how many of you all over the United States and the world share my yearning.  …And then […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #252 – Blizzard of 2016 Edition

Rittenhouse Square snowman.

[In the mood for some mind travel? Try Zentangle®.] I’m writing this two days after the Blizzard of 2016 dropped up to 31 inches of snow on the Mid-Atlantic states, the most densely populated part of the United States. It’s ironic that in my response to last week’s challenge, I indulged in complaining about the weather—because […]

Zentangle Tangle Munchin

[Zentangle? What? Start here.] Last week for the first time in a very long time, I did not post a response to the Diva’s weekly challenge. I have a good excuse. I was “on assignment” reviewing the Woodloch Pines Resort on Lake Teedyuskung in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Yes, it’s a tough job, but someone […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #232 Betweed

This week, guest Zentangle Diva, Holly Atwater, challenged us to listen to an audio Zentangle meditation and to produce a tile created without any preconception about what the tangles are supposed to look like; in other words, to truly embrace the Zentangle method of creating art “one stroke at a time”. Recognizing that some of […]

Zentangle Diva’s Challenge #229 — Space: The Final Frontier

August 3, 2015 17 comments

This week, guest Zentangle Diva, Sandy Hunter, challenged us to embrace negative space. As she does, I find it difficult to put the pen down. Coincidentally, yesterday, I learned (the hard way) that sometimes negative space is crucial to what you are trying to achieve. I recently found myself nodding enthusiastically when I came across […]

Zentangle Diva's challenge #224

[If you’re not sure what this Zentangle thing is all about, start here.] This week, the Zentangle Diva challenged us to do a monotangle using just the tangle Tipple. My first reaction was “Really?” BTW, I have nothing against Tipple. In fact, it finds its way somewhere into most of my tiles. (For the uninitiated, […]

June 22, 2015 29 comments

This week, the Zentangle Diva challenged us to use the tangle Umble by Maria Thomas of the Zentangle Mother Ship in a composition. I was a little over ambitious in terms of how much time mine would take and Mr. Excitement is chomping at the bit to go for a walk on the beach here […]
