Senior Center Art Exhibit

The walls on the entry hall at the Senior Center looked so bare after the Silver Arts exhibits were removed, so our mixed media group that meets on Mondays was asked to put up an exhibit of our art work.   Here are a few of mine. IMG_0229_2 IMG_0229_2_3 IMG_0229_3_2 IMG_0238 The color does not show very well in the first one, but it is a print of an abstract painting in various shades of blue, and then I did Zentangles® on top of it.  Looks much better than the picture.  The two stained glass images are done on canvas with acrylic paints (not framed). The last one is a watercolor on paper that is framed. We have 25 paintings hanging, but I was unable to get good pictures due to the reflections on the glass from the windows.   If I can get some better pictures next week, I will show you some of the others. Here is one done by Hazel LeBlanc (better know as “Z”). IMG_0229_3  She used the butterfly template from Ben Kwok, zentangled it and glued to painted canvas on which she also did some Zentangle designs.  Very pretty, I think!   We have a small, but very talented, group that meets weekly to exchange ideas and show what we have done that week.  FUN!!

Winter Freeze

I don’t know how cold it is where you are, but the high today is supposed to be 17 degrees. Keep warm wherever you are.

I have been taking it easy the last few days.  Had a nasty fall on Monday of last week going out my front door.  Have been dizzy ever since, so went to the doctor on Monday.  She ran a lot of blood tests, and I don’t have the results for those yet. Late Monday we got ice and sleet that made walking rather treacherous, especially with the low temperatures.  Yesterday afternoon we got some snow on top of the ice. Today the sun is shining, but with that temperature, there won’t be much melting.

In the meantime, I’ve been doing some of my favorite Zentangles — making Zendalas.  Here are a few patterns I have drawn using various degree spacing around the perimeter.

Here are a few of the finished Zendalas:My Mandelas My Mandelas My Mandelas 1

 

Don’t forget — Spring will be here in a month.  Thanks for stopping by.
