My Happy Place

After a good month of not doing any Zentangles, I finally spent some time over the weekend making a couple.  

 Usually I just draw them in black ink and then use a pencil to shade and add some depth, but I decided to experiment with color again. 

I love color, but sometimes I find it hard to work with because I want to use ALL THE COLORS!   

Using all the colors can get a bit murky though. Or it can become an assault on the eyes. 

Last night, our Toastmasters club held a speech contest. We had three really great and inspiring speakers. When I got home, I was pretty wired, so I decided to bang out a quick drawing before settling in for the night.
I really like how this one came out. It really just flowed so easily. 

When I got in the car today and heard on the radio that Brussels had been attacked, I kept thinking about this drawing and how soothing it was for me. Weird, right? 

I wish the terrorists would lay down their arms and pick up some art supplies. Maybe that will be my life’s purpose- to encourage art, not war.
