One Stroke Plus

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.

  1. I like the one without the pentangle so much more. The colors in the background are perfect with the tulip. I don't know about adding the stem and leaf. It might be a plus, but I really like it as it is.
