The guest challenger for this week's Zentangle challenge is Carole Ohl of the Open Seed Arts blog. Carole was invited to participate as an “Artist of the Month” at a new local restaurant (in Dayton, Ohio) in September where she will be showing some of her Zentangle artwork.
She's decided to give one wall over to a section called "Zentangle is for Everybody!" This part of the exhibition will demonstrate how Zentangle is interpretated differently and beautifully by each person who does it. For this she has asked for contributions!
We are to use four specific tangles on a zentangle-size paper tile. This was an extra challenge for me because three of the four tangles I've never done before. What a great opportunity to add to my repertoire! So, using only the tangles Baton (by Carole Ohl), Keenees (by Donna Hornsby), Pais (by Mikee Huber) and Zedbra (by Laura Harms a.k.a. the Diva and yours truly), here are my productions:
The first, I definitely like this way up. The next two I seem to like a different way each time I look at them! I'm a big fan of Carole's artwork and will be delighted to have some of my zentangle tiles displayed in the same venue as hers.
Oh, wow. I love how your Pais and Zedbra meander through your tile "holding hands" in #2 and #3. Your Keenees pen shading is lovely. That is something I still need to work on. Also love the patterns you used in your Pais on #1. Very fancy. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
These are so much fun, Margaret! Thanks for the kind words above, and I am looking forward to having a real live exhibit of this fun Zentangle community!ReplyDelete
These are all beautiful! I really admire the shading! Fantastic!ReplyDelete
I really like the Pais in the first tile. It looks much more paisley like~ which I am very partial to :)ReplyDelete
All so lively and spirited!ReplyDelete
They all have great movement through their curves.ReplyDelete
Fabulous blog. I love all things Zentangle and this is so much eye candy for me. I'll be back for more.ReplyDelete
