Colouring in!

on October 24, 2014

It was my blog friend, Trisha, who introduced me to the idea of Zentangle drawing. I am hopelessly trying to find her exact post but in the meantime here is the link to her blog:

Anyway, I got a bit into it because (a) I’m not a bit keen on artsy/crafty stuff so I thought it might be good for me; and (b) I needed something to do with Ants in the nursing home, other than watching television.

So, a few weeks ago, I started to do this drawing thing and LOVED IT! Anthony was a bit patronizing though – “Yes, I used to do this when I was 5” (he is so good at sarcasm!), but I ignored his characteristic bumpetyness and drew another circle.

The colouring in is a bit of a buzz, especially now that I have gone to a proper art shop and bought good quality colored pens. I have now done two pictures for Ants which, if you put them on the far wall, and squint your eyes a bit, look a tiny bit like art.

Obviously this colouring in tendency has leaked into my mother’s 80th birthday book so I hope she won’t be too appalled!

    I’m sure she’ll be delighted, Julie.

    (and thanks for the link to Trisha’s blog – she seems to be on the path I was on 20 years ago with the Aromatherapy, Herbal Medicine & meditation thing and then…..of course…..I got the Fibromyalgis diagnoses in 2006. I don’t follow ‘health blogs much anymore, but a kindred spirit is worth following).
