Renee Zarate's Bolton House is still in New England but Renee herself has moved on to South Carolina. The days are a little different now, no garden to take care of means more studio time. Dealing with snow and blizzards will be a thing of the past but there will be new challenges. Challenges like...how will we ever carry these two chairs and this huge umbrella down to the beach? Stay tuned.

I wondered what my mandala Zentangle would look like if I did it on a 12" piece of black card stock with a white Gelly Roll pen. It really doesn't take as long as you would think to do one of these. It took me a few hours max. I considered it my morning stretch while I had my cup of coffee. Just a few minutes here and there during the day and Voila! it was done. Try it yourself, don't over think it, just one stroke at a time, as Rick and Maria (the inventors of Zentangle) like to say. You will notice that with each small rotation you get a different perspective of the wheel.
Kind of like life.
Now rotate the wheel slightly and you get a different look.
Look a little closer....
It is not perfect but then neither am I and that's OK. Hope you will try it, it is very relaxing and fun.
