Some of you may remember last month when I met Donna Dewberry at the HOOT convention and I painted a pretty tulip with her.
It has been sitting on my kitchen and every time I walked by, it looked lonely.
It isn’t any more! I thought it might be fun to combine One Stroke painting with “Anything is possible one stroke at a time” Zentangle. Birdie doesn’t think the Zentangle is an improvement, but I must admit that I really, really do. I didn’t care for the way the pens (faber Castel Pitt artist pens) worked on the canvas, but I did want to try again.
So, I grabbed a smaller canvas and started out to copy the tulip so l could tangle around it, but the paint had other ideas.
It’s not done yet, but I am seriously thinking of just putting in the stem and leaves and signing it. It was fun to just play with colors. My brain felt like it was in a fog and I could barely form a coherent sentence, but I think that helped quiet my inner critic long enough for my to just enjoy the process.
I am hoping that I will still be able to do that now that the meds are kicking in and I’m feeling more myself.
Wishing you joy in creating this week. Happy paint party Friday.
