Well, the real Nitty Gritty is that I come from a family of wild and crazy artists that can find anything lying around and just "know" that we can paint on it, re-arrange it, change it, glue it, stuff it or just admire it. Our garages are filled with great finds and I, myself, have tried many, many mediums of art.
When I first saw Zentangles and Zentangled Inspired Art (ZIA) I was mesmerized by the simplicity (repetitious strokes) and complexity (as it appears when complete) of this awesome and welcomed art form. Of course, being the adventurer I am, I gave it a try. And wa-la, here I am, a year later and getting ready to teach an art that I absolutely love!
Now of course, nothing I find in all my outings is any safer from me now! I just picture it with Zentangle patterns all over it and it just seems to follow me home!
The greatest thing about Zentangles (other than it totally relaxing me as I draw), is that it can be enjoyed by all ages and all talents! In other words, you do not need ANY art experience what-so-ever! I promise, you will be as excited as I was the first time I completed my first drawing.
