Did you know?

A "Pandula" is a flower which blooms only in one's imagination.

I've been playing around with some ball point pens doing some free hand doodles. Check it out.

Here's the first one. No pencils no erasers just me and an ink pen. Can you say art therapy?

This is number two and I really love this piece it has kind of a bluish greenish teal-ish colors and a purply blue.

Then this one came along.  Just a little bookmark. I watercolored the paper before I drew the design and I even burned the edges.

Number four is done on a stretched canvas. Not sure how I feel about this when yet. But I did discover glitter ink pens what fun.

I don't think it's done yet.

This one I really like!  It is done on white paper and I used a red pen, a purple pen with glitter in it and a mauve pen. 

Everyone says it looks like Hair.

For me I just like how it flows, however I am thinking of doing one it's all sharp points so stay tuned.

Then I did a Pineneedle bracelet. I still really like the infinity design.

So in the last week or so I have done multiple zentangle inspired drawings,  three baskets and started a fourth,  and a Pineneedle bracelet as well.

Art is a great stress reliever.

Whoops I forgot to show you the baskets…

And then I did a little purple and blue one. That's purple and blue threads of course.

 OK I think that's everything now now!

Moved my rv for the second time in two months :-( sooooo, not many posts to blog!

So here we go.  Since my last post I have been kind of all over the map with my art.  Everything from beadwork to drawing.  

Here i just picked up an ink pen with no plan and let my mind and hand just wander.  Look what happened. 

 I call this  ZIA doodle "Flo". Probably because nothing about moving just flo's, it is always jagged and difficult for me.

Then I painted over my only canvas.  This is for a background to draw on.  

Kind of like how I did this one with watercolor...My friend kraftymax asked me for a "bright" sugar skull.  She loved him!

Then I did this in my sketch book.

I love green and blue together.  

I did this while also painting the canvas background and another background in watercolor.  In the process I accidently transferred pink paint from my hand onto the paper...thus the pink ribbon.

Then a little bookmark and I even burned the edges.  First time I ever did that.  

I clearly have a thing going for this "flowy" design.

Then I tried ballpoint pen on top of the acrylic paint on canvas.  Who knew there were glitter ink pens lol?

I am not really sure how I feel about this one.  He is kind of on hold while I think of what it needs next.

Then I started a pineneedle basket with whatever supplies I could gather.  My usual supplies were not with me and it was my absolute worst basket ever...

Done with cross stitch linen and the tiniest, most brittle pine needles ever.  I didn't even put my mark on it.  

But my friends daughter wanted it so I gave it to her , other wise I would have cut it up and re-used the wood center.

Now I have my basket supplies and am working on a little 5 in. Oval basket.   Ahhhh a comfort zone.  Much better.  

 So for now that is it.

No farmers market right now, but I do have my application in for the Jacksonville Fl Riverside Arts Market!  

Wish me luck and don't forget to find me on instagram and facebook under Earth Baskets or Pandulaarts Creations!
