Hello there! I have been busy reclaiming my soul, one stroke at a time. Folk art patterns, watercolor pencils, and Pigma Micron pens are the tools in my rebirth. At the top you can see some of the watercolor drawings that I have done, including the blue stars that I have started tangling already.

Underneath, you can see the greeting cards I have already finished. The green on the pears, by the way, is actually a softer, yellower green. I think my camera wasn't quite accurate.

The inkwork patterns I use are all Zentangle patterns. You can find more at

The nicest surprise in the yard this year: two of the volunteer sunflowers, covered with volunteer morning glories. Have no idea what variety the sunflower is, but the morning glories are an heirloom variety, "Grandpa Ott." They're a deep purple with crimson throats, and they just glow in the sunshine.

I dearly love my watercolor pencils. Never really had a chance to play with them before. This is a folk-art bird pattern which I have made my own.
