I had kids here for the weekend. The long, cold weekend. Indoors.
They are in a “Mythological” stage. The Rick Riordan books got them interested but now, as we are a Netflix/Roku family, they have found Hercules and Xena as well as some really old black and white movies with Charlton Heston and others…what I’m trying to say here is that it can be a really loooong weekend when the entertainment is set at the adolescent level. So to wile away the hours I finally tried out some zen-tangling.
I got started on some ATC -sized pieces of watercolor paper left over from some booth or giveaway along the way. By the time I had done 2 I was hooked. Hmmm – “Have you kids seen Ben Hur? How about some more popcorn?” LOL
Since the weekend I have worked on them in a doctors office, waiting in a parking lot, waiting for a prescription, while watching English television programs (they tend to go slower) and have been making excuses to run down to the studio just for a moment…What is it about them? I think I just love to add “one more line, or maybe a dot…” The black and white looks so crisp and formal in the small format and then the content? Silly with no redeeming value. I love it.
