"The Zen of Three..."



...Zendala ATC cards, that is...(Yep! It's another new series!)

I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.”

These would make beautiful medallions for the garden Margaret. My head is stuck in the garden this time of year. ha..

They would make great silver pendants, too! Love them.

That's a strong quote. It seems intuitive at first, but then you think about how our consumer society works. Buy more (complexity), buy it now (no patience) and it's what you need (don't consider others). This begs some thought. Thanks for the quote and the nice visualization.

I think your brain works overtime ;)

Stunning series! I'd love to see them in silver also. Pendants, belt buckles, brooches. Wow!

My thoughts were shields of old for female warriors - must be thinking of Bodicea. Simplistic but beautiful and bold.

Love your work! My son took an art class a couple years ago and his teacher introduced them to ATCs. He loves making them! He's only 11,though, so they are not quite as professional as yours. :-) I'll have to show him your blog!

I just attempted my first zentangle and posted it on my blogsite. I just love black and white - so strong. I agree with the rest, these would be great silver medallions. I'm thinking earrings.

Love your mandalas...I've been toying with the idea of creating an appliqued one. You are an inspiration!

Beautiful series! It has motion in it... Almost looks like it is spinning!
