Zentangles & Optical Art

This kind of art is about all I’m doing right now.  I have lots of paintings I need to finish, but keep putting them off.  Terrible.  Everything I paint, I keep seeing things I want to add to it or do differently.  I have lots of ideas for paintings, but I no longer get ideas for writing anything longer than a Tweet.

I hope to progress beyond these decorative kinds of paintings which can be classified as zentangles and/or optical art.  They are so easy to do while watching TV.  I love the English mysteries they have on PBS, like Grantchester, my very favorite right now.  I’m 74 now and am starting to physically slow down.   I figure that I can learn from doing these kinds of paintings and move on.  I grow very fast.

Decorative Art

A few things I have done to contribute to the world of the Decorative Arts.  Things like these help brighten up a room.  Markers on 12″ x 12″ canvas.  In this “Age of Trump,” a person needs an outlet to get their mind off of politics, at least for a few minutes.

Anti-Trump Marches And Rallies Planned For April 15

Marches and rallies are now being planned for April 15 to get Trump to release his taxes.  First President since Nixon not to do so. [if he changes his mind before April 15th, disregard this blog]

I didn’t take this photo, but thought it so cute, I wanted to show it to everyone. Believe it was from the Washington DC march
