Autumn. They brought her sheaves and heads of grain and placed them at her feet. As she looked down at them, against the hem of her gown, she understood. It is the time of harvest, to prepare for the cold to come. It is time to burn the man of straw and rags. They must celebrate with things sweet and warm and ready everyone for the days of propitiation.

Again. On monday, I posted a Zentangle that was pink and grey. I decided to repeat that color combination, but in a different way. Here, I started with a tile that was grey to begin with. I added a small amount of pink and then did the shading and highlights. It turned out to be an interesting effect. Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Toned Grey paper using a black, Micron pen.

Still blue. A while back I tried a blue tile, but ran into a few problems. After a few tests, I decide to give it another shot. This is more like what I wanted!

I‘ll have the cabernet. Actually, this is more the color of Welch‘s Grape Juice! I really liked this color combination.

Pockets. This tangle reminds me of a pocket with a spiral lolipop in it. I wanted to experiment with the various brown pens in my collection, to see how much contrast there was between the various tones.

Ground-eye view. What do you see when you lay down in the garden on your stomach and look around? To me, this is what I would see if my garden was full of plants that grew from tangle seeds.
