Easter Zentangle and Old School Art

For Easter we had the family over for dinner. Because I had so much to do I decided to do a zentangle on the chalkboard that is in our kitchen(sarcasm here….I had plenty to do and this was not the best choice:)). We have this massive old school chalkboard in our kitchen. Can you tell we are both teachers. This was by far the biggest art piece(funny I call it art instead of doodling!) I have crafted. And the first zentangle in chalk.

As I was cleaning out the closet in the Nerd Cave I came across a big old watercolor notepad of mine. This is not watercolor, but I have decided to share these pieces in bits. This one was from college at some point. I don’t declare to be any good at what I do and this piece proves I am not talented, but it does make a statement. Obviously I was going through something at the time with the word “MORE” in bold black and the ? added to the street. I don’t recall my thoughts nor really what year I did this. I am intrigued by what I was expressing. I must have gotten it off my chest as I don’t remember the stage in my life.

A painting of mine from I don't know when. I am assuming college.

Art Is In Session!

This spring break I am working on trying to organize and declutter my life. This has been an ongoing battle to which I very slowly make progress. I have this closet in the nerd cave loaded with stuff. By loaded I mean the door would not open. I am in the process of organizing and letting go.

In the process I have found my joy of art and photography. The last few days I have tried to get back into things. Now, I suck at art. I am better at photography, but art is not my thing despite enjoying.

So, I have dabbled in Zentangles and using my new Buddha Board.

Here are three examples.

I have ordered new art supplies so when they come in I will try to utilize some new tools that will hopefully help. Once I get my old computer back up and running(I finally got it to power on) I will be using Photoshop to enhance the backgrounds.

Until next time……..
