Today, I participated in an arts fair at the Ohio State hospital presented by the Medicine & the Arts program. It was so interesting to be able to present the healing side of Zentangle. Sometimes I focus so much on the creative side that I might forget for a while how beneficial it is. There were so many medical students, nurses, therapists, and patients that had never heard of Zentangle before, and I loved getting the chance to explain it to them.
This is a new tangle for me, and I like it. It reminds me a bit of Tripoli, but I find it easier to draw. I’m still working on my backgrounds from Sharla’s botanical retreat. One day I may do some botanicals on them, but don’t hold your breath!
Finally, it was such a glorious day, that I had to walk around my alma mater. Paradoxically, there are both more buildings and more green space than there used to be. Enjoy a glimpse of Ohio State.
