This was my second attempt. I am happy with the result. Managed to loosen up. Also, I did not kill the light with too many layers. There are things I will do different the next time. Learned from this, so all is well.

The first painting was solid areas of flat color. My white pen gave out, so I switched to paint and a brush. Wasn’t liking it, so I stopped and set it aside. Today it does not look as bad to me, I plan on going back to finish that one.


L.Y.A. Postcard #2

I was late in posting card #1. I did not receive these back to back. This fun Zentangle art is from my good friend Kat van Rooyen. We have swapped for several years. Kat lives in Tazewell Virginia. In years past, she has shared her wonderful photos of the Appalachian Mountains.

Kat is a Certified Zentangle Teacher. Her classes are popular and she often gets requests to add more. She is inspiring. Health issues could have stopped her in her tracks. But she keeps on going!

Kat’s message on the back:

Encouraging your inner Artist to surface, polish and SHINE!

And this reminder:

It’s all possible one stroke at a time!
