Zentangle Inspired Art (again)


I borrowed this idea from Giny Stiles, an artist friend who lives in Florida.  I asked her if she minded if I used the idea for the class I teach on Monday evenings and she graciously gave me her blessing! I also borrowed the idea of the two watering cans - but - I promise, I did my own drawings.   These are the two that I did - believe me, the students did a lot better...their work just blew me away and I will post them Monday night (after I photograph them!)  These are both 1/4 sheet of 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper - watercolor with zentangles in colored and black sharpie markers.

These are such lovely and cheerful pieces, Barb. Makes me wish I had a gardening shed so that I could hang these within.

Thanks, Sherry!

Barb...I love how your tangles don't overtake the entire piece, they just add to your wonderful watercolors. You really must have these made into note cards, they just demand that!

Hey girlfriend I LOVE this take off on my watering cans. Better than mine for sure!!! GREAT fun.

Barb Sailor said...

Thanks, Susan. They most certainly would make nice note cards - I will have to look into this!

Hi Ginny - Thanks so much for the watering can idea - AND - they are certainly NOT better than yours!!! I agree that they are great fun!
Have I said that I enjoy your blog? (Yes - but it bears saying again) - it always has such great content!
