New Zentangle

Just when the caterpillar though it's life was over
It became a butterfly

New zentangle design....with caterpillar, butterfly, heart, flowers and leaves. Let it remind all of us that just because we come to a road block - what feels like an end. That there is another door to open.. another place to start new - move forward. A new BEGINNING! For the many trials of life there is always and new opportunity...a new journey to begin.

Few of my other sketches

This is in the process.. not fully completed ... Dillion claimed as his next tattoo...
At the point I created this - it symbolized a lot of what was going on in both our lives
so it will always have a very deep meaning to us.

How it started...

I discovered Zetangles while looking through a Cloth, Paper and Scissors magazine... which for whatever reason I just felt driven to find that certain issue...I had just a few months before lost someone who was a very precious part of my life - who passed a way expectantly.. But, in the short time we were together (after walking back into my life after over 20 years - telling me the exact day and year he fell in love with me - so many years ago) he brought into my life several gifts from his heart, which will always be treasured... After this tragic loss I felt my creativity was gone - along with that came empty days of missing my best friend. Then I came upon the faithful issue of the Cloth, Paper and Scissors magazine ..which changed my days, even though everyday I still hurt. I was able to focus that pain and loneliness into my art again... and from that - Zenology Design was born.. I hope you continue to follow my blog as my designs continue. Know - that they are inspirations of a lost love, that most people will never experience. I was lucky enough to have experienced - unconditional love and a true friend for a brief moment of time... that will forever be in my heart, along with the treasures he gave - he never realized the impact he left on others... I love you and miss you greatly are forever the person who I draw my strength from, your kindness and understanding will never be forgotten....

Valentine's Day design for card

Design for the Valentine's Day card.... each one will be finished with crystals to add sparkle..Inside it will say you complete my heart.

Lessons I have Learned from a TREE

That no matter where you start it's up to you to sink your roots deep and build a solid foundation - your future is truly up to you.
That just because you are in a pine tree forest - does not make you a pine tree - Be yourself.
That they're arms are always open - Always there offering protection and shelter - Asking nothing in return and not judging.
That through life's storms you need to bend - Or it will leave you BROKEN!
That each tree is unique with bumps, scars, grooves and knots - That does not make it any less beautiful - It actually makes it more beautiful...
So each time you see a tree let it remind you to stand tall and be proud of who you are!
