This week, Joey asked us to reflect on music and tangle a flat! (You're so creative, Joey!) She asked if we associate music with our drawing. I love music, but I want to let myself be totally absorbed by it. While I frequently listened to music when I started tangling two years ago, I rarely do so now. (Recently, I bought Rick Roberts' Zentangle® Sounds CD and enjoyed it.) I am easily distracted by sound, which probably comes from teaching middle school for over 20 years! When I draw, I like to listen to the sound of my breathing and my pen, which whispers across the paper. (I recently told my husband, when he was tangling,"I shouldn't be able to hear your pen. You're pressing too hard!!! Relax!!!" Sorry, Lar.)
For this tile, done on a rectangular scrap of card stock I picked up by mistake, I wanted some drama. I had planned to make the left side black with white ink. I pulled out my black Permopaque marker to color it, and decided to go with a striped background. Reminiscent of the staff, albeit short a line?
Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your comments!
