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.
