New Butterfly aceo's

I've been having a lot of fun creating aceo's with colored pencils. I can sit in the recliner in the evening and create while I'm relaxing. It's nice to sometimes use a medium that you don't have to sit at the table or easel to be able to use. So here are a few of my latest.

Butterflies In the Spring aceo

Happy St. Patrick's Day

"Saint Patrick was a gentleman,
Who through strategy and stealth,
Drove all the snakes from Ireland,
Here’s a toasting to his health.
But not too many toastings
Lest you lose yourself and then
Forget the good Saint Patrick
And see all those snakes again."

To honor the day here some Irish Inspired Creations from some of our Team:

Thank you for stopping by and My wish is that you all have a safe and happy St. Patrick's Day.

So It Has a Name

Last weekend when I put up my Sunday Sketch I put up a  doodle I did when my cable was out. I just did it with a couple of pens. No big deal. Just doodling.
After I posted my link to my Sunday Sketch I had a couple of people tell me that it was a zentangle.....who knew. I had no idea what a zentangle was. Turns out it some sort of mediative  drawing or doodling. According to  "Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing. It increases focus and creativity. Zentangle provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of personal well being"
 They also call it a "elegant metaphor for deliberate artistry in life" and also "mediative". You can buy kits and books...they've taken doodling to a whole new commercial thing.

I did a search on Etsy. There are a lot of them on there. But for me, it's just a doodle. I do that when I'm bored. I always have. When I go to meetings my notes are filled with doodles.  So inspired by the beautiful doodles or zentangles in color, I decided to do another and enhance it with watercolor and here it is.

It is available in my Etsy Shop at this link:
