Alex, Sam introduced the zentangle with her blue jays. Sheila does a pen tango doodle artwork that we looked at on her blog that are very nice. Sam gave me the information as to the availability of zentangle patterns. Thank you for your comments on my blue jay and I agree it does look much better cropped.

Bonnie   C & C most welcome / appreciated

Alex, zentangle is a worldwide art form and you can find tons of info about it online.  Sheila has just chosen to call her own personal doodles pen tangle.

Be careful about emailing someone in response to a message like above.  If that person wanted us to see the art work, that person could post it here.  I'm very wary of these sort of thing.

Kim, I love your impressionistic approach to this and all the colors you used.  This is beautiful and sure to be treasured by Geri and his nephew.

Kim I love your painting and when I show it to his mom she will love it too.  You need to post this in the members gallery.  You said that you were going to post this in another forum.  Where do I find this I am curios to what they say? YesYes

JEN, SAM, & MARSHA - Thanks for your kind words. I moved his mouth and nose once only to put it back where it started, re-did his ears, changed his head shape more than once, had fits with his hair, kept changing his eyes - he transformed. Finally had to work on it upside down to get it.  It's probably the best w/c that I've done, so it'll likely be all downhill from here. Your encouraging words meant a lot.
 
GERI - So glad you liked it! I do hope the mom likes it. I really liked your grandson's expression and just his look of innocence - precious. Reminds me of some farm kids that I know and wish I could clone. Great photo. One suggestion - if he could grow his hair a bit, it would be easier to paint! ;) I never did figure out how to get the look of his hair, but at least he looks good with it in the photo.
 
Member's gallery...haven't checked that out and not up to speed as far as what it's about. Thought we could only post in one thread for same art. I am still finding my way around this forum.
 
To answer your ?, I also posted my ptg. at  http://paintdoodles.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=13 (title: Nate with his Goat), tho not nearly as much activity at that site. 
 
JIM - Thanks! You may enjoy trying some w/c pencils sometime. They appear like colored pencils. Someone's reply in January (maybe the Chatter thread tho? couldn't find it now), did a good job describing many ways to use them. I used the one method she described, which was to take the pigment off the w/c pencil with a wet brush, then apply the paint to the dry or wet paper. So I didn't use them like pencils. I've not done many w/c pencil ptgs. - hated using w/c pencils orig., but am enjoying them now due to their convenience and being able to use with a brush. I can pack them in a pencil case inc. a couple brushes, and pack a cheap wide-mouth water bottle that I dedicated for painting. Pop a small w/c paper and bit of paper towel into my bag, and it's ready to take if planning on waiting in a doctor's office, etc.. Quick to pack up in a few sec. too. Trying to twist your arm to try. :)

JEN, SAM, & MARSHA - Thanks for your kind words. This one took many twists/turns literally since I kept re-dong his hair, moved his nose/mouth only to put it back where it was, re-did his head shape several times, and on & on. Finally had to turn it upside down to get it. It's probably the best w/c that I've done, so it'll likely be all downhill from here.
Encouraging words from you 3, Geri, and Jim means a lot.
