“Look at situations from all angles, and you will become more open.”~Dalai Lama, Tibetan teacher
The Diva’s weekly Zentangle Challenge #155 is about open spaces. In Zentangle, artists almost feel the need to fill every space with tangles. Open space is, well…open, empty. Unfinished. I tell my students that it takes great courage to leave white space, to say that something is complete even though it does not look finished.
I had a much easier time with this “open space” challenge than I have in the past. I even took a spin on the challenge and used a black tile; thus, black space. It has a different feel to it, but the same strength to leave breathing room. The gold Pentel gel pen flows nicely on these tiles, shaded with gold Prismacolor pencil. This was fun. Freeing.
