Line Drawings

It's so fascinating where art can take you when you try a new approach. I was reading about Zentangles on Maria Thomas' web page . She is an artist with amazing talent who created this concept. I thought I would try some zentangles on my own. Here are my results...

Pretty interesting, I think.
They may not seem so to the observer, but to me they are amazing.

When I tried at first, I started with the heart and added the star as I reached that point in the design. My second attempt is what I call a fish - rather imaginative isn't it? The flowing lines of each of these made me think of a dress.

Because I'm experimenting, I may add some more details.
I'm not really sure where this will take me, but it's fun to find out.

Here is the final product of my painting efforts.
I love the colors
and I'm really not going to add anything else.
I may or may not use it for my header.
I think I'll play some more before I decide.
I'm really glad that I finished it

My Header

Well, I did a painting for my header, but...I don't think it's finished enough. Here's a preview:

The border needs some work, and I think the details can be better. I spent as much time on it last night as I could. I went to Yoga and had to go to Staples for my Hubby. Those breaks actually gave me some time to get a fresh look at everything.

It's ok, but not quite what I envisioned. If anyone reads this, please let me know what you think. I can redo it, or use parts of it in a new composition or even a collage.

Right now, I'm going to the store for some groceries. Later, I'll approach it again with fresh eyes.

For now, I have placed one of my favorite photos from last summer in the header.
I'll be back.

Jamie at Starshyne Productions has prompted us to think of how we wish to play.
Here it is:
I wish that my day could be filled with the scent of spring as I
finish my new design.
I started a new header for my blog, Dolci.
It's time to finish.
I want it to be sweet, juicy, and delicious,
Almost good enough to eat :)!
So I'll paint and play,
doodle and draw.
I wish to finish it by tonight.

Originally, I had created this picture for Illustration Friday last week. Even though I'm a little behind or late, I decided to post it. It was interesting to think of a way to show how someone might anticipate the need to adapt if their bubble burst.
Life could become interesting for a while. The two characters from two different worlds might become friends and form an alliance. On the other hand, they might resent one another until they found common ground.
There might be a story worth exploring here.
