Za-Za-Za Zentangle

Look at my newest Zentangle----or maybe you could call it a "Zendala"
I love the way it turned out
(kind of wishing my camera like close up work)

Took the opportunity last week to attend
Art Alley

Lisa Williams, a local therapist, runs art evenings in her Art Alley twice a month
One is for general public
One is for therapists

She gives an art prompt idea
provides supplies
and for a small fee attendees meander into creative fun

In the therapist art evening, she talks about applications of the art method in therapy
This is the second time I have chosen to go

Lisa said she was obsessed with the art method she chose for the night: 

Small world....we must be on the same wave length. . . .
Just what I've been playing with this summer
in some of my drawing experimenting

It was her idea to set a circle  (a mandala) as the outer boundary
I chose to draw more circles inside mine, plus some curvy lines to make more art segments
before I started making my "zen" designs

Hu-u-u-u-u--u-ummmmmmmmmm. . . . .
Pretty cool, eh!
