When I get bored and need to slow down my thinking, I will get out my paper and pens to start doodling. It becomes relaxing amd before I know it I can have a calmer mind.
I can not say these zentangle doodles are completed. I always go back to them to add more patterns.
Next post I will show more on how to get started with zentangle patterns.

Colors are important, they tell a story without any words.
The paintings I am posting are in acrylic that show the color and shapes that I create. Canvas size is 30"x40".
The paintings were commissioned. My friend said paint anything. So I painted zentangle patterns. The patterns are from my imagination. I played music and let the flow of music, color and shapes guide me.
It took me about 5 months to complete.
Artists who are my inspiration are Picasso and Kandinsky. Their color shape and textures fascinate and motivate me to keep painting.

I am currently working on a Zentangle using oil pastels. It is a doodle with many layers of shapes and colors. It's very relaxing and fun to create. The doodle shapes are repeated, but without planning. So every piece is a surprise at the end.
