ZenTangle #3 (Trading Card)

We took our first camping trip of the season this weekend and spent part of our time working on Zen Tangles. As usual, my talented daughter is always a few steps ahead of me creating outrageously wonderful work. :) We both find working on a Zen Tangle to be extremely relaxing. Here is my "trading-card" size finished product.

ZenTangle #2

We went the Tom Chapin concert at Mitchell Park in Palo Alto this evening, sat on the lawn with a ton of other families, kids were climbing trees, dancing, there was a guy juggling, all having good old-fashioned summertime fun. Rick's Icecream had a booth and Jeff got us all these huge Amish-style icecream sandwiches. While we were singing along to the music Liz and I were also busy sketching. Here is the ZenTangle I drew.

Colorful Converse

My painting pal, Pattie, offered us a selection of photos she took of her kid's shoes to help kick us (read "me") into gear to start painting again! Well, it worked, here is my finished painting......thanks Pattie!
