My darling daughter

Yesterday was my daughter's birthday.
It is getting harder and harder to find something unique and special to celebrate her. So I tangled a portrait of her. I think she's embarrassed by it, but then that's what I have been doing for a long time - embarrassing her. That's part of the fun of being a mom.
She is a tremendous woman. A marvelous mother of two, a great wife, and a wise and caring woman of God. I am SO proud of her.
I love you Katie.

Christmas at the Mathews

This is my black and white Zentangled Christmas tree. Next year I hope to add more hand done ornaments. The fabric angel was done by a CZT in Huntsville, Paula Dickerhoff, who had some of her work made into fabric! The stars were my favorite. Whoever would have thought that a tree withouts lots of different colors would be so lovely, if I do say so myself.

New classes are starting up. Have a beginning class Thurs. Jan 4. at 10:00. Contact me if you are interested.


I have been remiss at posting anything lately, been too busy drawing. I have participated at a show at the Manatee Heritage Village and that took so much of my time but it was terrific fun. I drew these birds and made cards from them as well as just pictures. I am pretty proud of them.

Oh, What You Can Do With An Initial

The letter L . . . don't know why it's hard for me to feel inspired with "L".
I am trying to use at least one new pattern daily. I find it really easy to get into a rut using the same patterns over and over. None of the patterns used in my "L" are new but I did use a different aura which put me a little out of my comfort zone. Also the design is not enclosed in a "box" and I'm still experimenting. The great thing about Zentangle art is that if you don't like it one time, you can put it aside and then pick it up later and see it differently. This one is growing on me.

My Sister's New Blog

Here's my latest work of the day. I started another one today at my doctor's office. But after giving me a shot in my right hand will have to wait until the swelling passes to finish that one!

Check out my sister, Virginia's new blog.  She is addicted to tangling too and will be showing off her work.

Tile in a tile

challenge this week was to tangle a tile on a tile. This is my try. It is the first time I have attempted a challenge. But even more challenging is the success of getting this to their site.  Hope this works.

I love this challenge. I feel as if I am ready to hang a picture already matted.  My husband wants me to make more of these, mount them to cork squares, coat them and use them for coasters. Hmmmm.

Zentangle is such a freeing art - no mistakes and the sky is the limit.

Classes Available

Finally!!!! Summer is winding down and I am gearing up.

I am opening my studio to students who want to learn Zentangle. I will be holding classes on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. Interested? Leave me a message with your phone number and I will get back with you.

Classes are $35.00/per student. That includes all materials and a 2 1/2 - 3 hour class.

Each class can hold up to 6 people. For larger groups, we would need to work out a venue or space rearrangement.

I will also come to your house for group instruction with an additional travel fee, if there are enough people coming.
If you are interested in a night class, we can negotiate that.

REMEMBER, Christmas is coming and Zentangled gifts are fun to give, and inexpensive.
Also at the studio, you can rent space to spread out your projects and work on them without having to clear off the kitchen table. Rent for a day, a week or a month.

If you are an art teacher and would like to hold a course of your own, I rent space for that as well.
