Lace, Lines, Loops...

...and "lotsa" swirls all drawn lead free
and
lavishly linked together...
not only in a leafy labor of (zen journaling) love
but also in
another last minute Illustration Friday prompt. :)

Illustration Friday : "LINKED"

"We begin to die as soon as we are born,
and the end
is linked to the beginning."

Oh yes, all is linked in your art. I am always amazed how different, exquisitly each piece is rendered.

This is so pretty. I have just been part of several zendala exchanges and it's not as easy as it looks coming up with all those patterns!!

Janene said...

I like this one a lot. All of the different patterns are fascinating.

Ellen said...

Chris said...

Love it.

What a beautiful zen! Even without color, there is color to your work--it's just all in texture,line and movement instead of red, yellow and blue.

Every time I think that yo have finished exploring zentangles, you delight us this another variation. I'm going back to my drawing board.
There certainly is more that I can do!

Great. What a fabulous interpretation of the theme!!

I'm just about to publish my naive take on IF-detective. Have a look if you have time.

Such intricate designs and patterns - beautiful!

freebird said...

It looks great. There is so much detail here.

I see your quote and I can only paraphrase an anonymous priest who was a hospital chaplain. He said it differently and it really made me think: We are living until we aren't anymore. I guess it's that glass that is either half empty or half full.
