30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 30: Zentangle Inspired Art using a Tole Design



Yipee!  This is day 30 and I made it in spite of some pretty big hurdles like my dear husband being hospitalized 2 weeks ago.  He is doing fine, but it took some juggling to get everything done during the time he was in the hospital.

This design is drawn from the design on a gift bag received from a good friend, Rosie.    It is not exactly the type of design used in Zentangles - more of the type of designs found in tole painting in the 70's, but it did make a pretty design with the addition of tangles.

This Zentangle Inspired Art  is 6 inches x 6 inches and is done on good white drawing paper with Micron-Pigma pens and Prismacolor colored pencils.

This is a lovely ZIA. I like the colors in the flower and the way you incorporated tangles. Congratulations on meeting your 30 day challenge.

J L Johnson, I was so happy when day 30 finally was completed, but I do have a feeling of accomplishment.
Thank you for your positive comments, too!
