It seems like forever since I’ve written a new blog post. So sorry for neglecting you! I feel like I keep repeating myself when I say, “It’s been interesting.” (My new positive word for Murphy’s law in action.) Since I’ve last written, we’ve been to Cleveland for a robotics tournament, to Michigan to visit John’s brother, to Toronto, OH, to spend Orthodox Easter with my family; I survived a nasty allergy attack/cold/bronchitis, developed a new class, taught it at Artiscape, made pendants, bracelets, and cups to sell at Artiscape along with other Zentangle goodies, and got 12 pieces of art finished, framed, and hung at the coffeehouse. I also did the two challenges I missed, but just didn’t get around to posting them!
Quick Peek at Artiscape
YES! I am having classes
Eek! What a shock when I brought up my blog to write this post and saw, “There are no events scheduled.” In fact, there are 4 different classes with 6 different dates to choose from. Somehow they just didn’t make it to the calendar! Here’s a link to my newsletter with the details! The website will be updated ASAP.
Art at River Road
My art is on display in Granville this month at River Road Coffeehouse, 935 River Rd. Alexa and I had a lot of fun hanging it. I’m up for a road trip if anyone wants to have coffee and tangle for a bit, just let me know.
So, before this week’s craziness starts in full force, here are the files I did yesterday. So happy that they fit the theme of the challenge!
The Diva challenge is to trace a nearby object as an interesting string. I happened to see an interesting shadow:
I immediately grabbed a pencil and a tile, and then I traced my cup. It was a nearby object, and I did use it for a string. (Whether or not a circle is interesting depends on what you put in it.) Here is my first interpretation of the pattern:
I had so much fun with it, that I did another last night on a Renaissance tile.
Finally, here is a work-in-progress. Looks like this will be another ‘interesting’ week, what with taxes, bookkeeping, 2 new classes, and playing catch-up from spending all week getting ready for Artiscape, I doubt I will have time to finish it soon.
