River Eagle

Standard

We were close to Glacier National Park and the road followed a river on the way into the Going to the Sun Road – my husband noticed an Eagle flying along the river – I wish I could have been fast enough to get a photo of it, but it turned out we saw a few Eagles on our trip and most of them were flying along the rivers.  I’m trying to cormemmorate our trip in my drawings and this is the latest….

Another fun template to work on from Ben Kwok.  I really enjoyed this, and I can’t recommend his templates enough, in case you haven’t noticed.

I’m preparing some of my work for a show we are doing in September – I’m so new to selling my work, and I would really appreciate any tips you have for packaging, mounting etc.  Some I plan to frame and other’s I have archival plastic sleeves to put them in, but they need something to beef them up so the work doesn’t bend.  Help?

Tangled Little Flycatcher

Standard

I love tangling these chubby little birds…..

 

Tangled Little Flycatcher 61614 001

Once again, a fun template by Ben Kwok.  I did add in the stump.  This is the first bird I think I get to keep….so far.  I’m thrilled to be able to sell some of my work, it’s taken a while for me to be confident enough to do that.  I’m definitely taking my work more seriously now.  I’ve recently revived my Redbubble account and posted some of my Zentangle Inspired Art there.    I had a Cafe Press account for about 15 minutes, but deleted it after I read somewhere that the quality of their products isn’t that great.  I’ve looked at Zazzle, but I’d love to hear where you all have your art – are you happy with the quality of the products your images are put on?

Another thing I’ve been thinking about lately is where I do the bulk of my work.  I actually sit on the couch, using the arm of it to lean my sketchpad on.  I have an ott light and I can be quite comfortable there for awhile.  Where do you work?  Desk?  Table?  Dedicated Drawing Table?  I’d love to hear it.

Finishing this little guy has left me without an active bigger project, but never fear….I took one of my small sketchbooks and pre-drew the first 65 strings from Linda Farmers site, Tanglepatterns.com.  And there is always the Diva’s Weekly Challenge.  This week is using two of my favorite tangles, Auraknot and Mooka.

What are you tangling this week?  Leave me a comment, I would love to look at your work!
