The other day I took a workshop in multi-media art (more on that later) when one of the artists mentioned she taught a course in zen tangling. Now, I had never heard of this before, but when she showed us an example, I instantly recognized it as doodling and was entranced! How beautiful! When I got home I dug out my best line-art pen and reached for a small canvas to try out "zen tangling." It was a relaxing process, and although it seemed to take forever to create, it is one of my favorite new pieces.

I've been wanting to try dripping crayons on a canvas for quite a while now, and lately, I've had so much creative energy! With this holiday boutique coming up, it's been the impetus for me to get cracking and try some art projects that have been marinating in my brain.

I began with a small 4X4 canvas and gave it a background of orange and gold paints, layering with tissues and a receipt along the way. The cat and butterfly were added toward the end, and finished off with my new India ink pen. I call him "Forlorn Cat."
