Things have been a little crazy recently. My dear mother passed away on my birthday last week. The day we were to leave, suitcases in the car, we cancelled our vacation plans. My brother and I are now into a lot of paperwork, and not the kind I like! I'm also feeling quite ill-prepared for September when I have a weekend art show and sale, a 3-day out-of-town teaching stint, and regular Zentangle activities to plan and announce.
So I'm going to cheat and share a piece I did in 2010. It's 7" square and made me think of of grasses and algae, tiny snails, bugs that walk on water, eddies and ripples and bubbles. To me it looks a bit like something under a microscope. I called it "Pond Water". There are a few tiny gems for sparkle which, of course, look better in person.
