Portals. So many choices. Where will they all lead. Some appear to be places with natural growth and others more rigid, enclosed. So many choices.

Garden view. When I looked out of the window, I realized that all of the plants were bare stems and pods because of the hot days of Summer! Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen. Shading done with graphite pencil. Tangles: Huggins Sedgling Squid

Upside down. Originally, when I started drawing this tile, it was oriented 180 degrees from this position. As I was working on it, and rotating it around to draw various parts, I realized that I liked it better this way. Zentangle drawn on Official Zentangle tile using a black, Micron pen.

Old fashioned. This tile has several tangles that I haven‘t drawn in some time. And the style is more like what I did years ago than what has evolved since then. Every so often, I think it‘s a good idea to reflect on the past. Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum using a black Micron pen.

Blue. I decided to experiment with a blue pen for this tile. I also shaded part of it with a blue colored pencil… after I did the Cirquital with a regular pencil and realized it looked a bit odd.

Divided. The string used for this tile had multiple spaces that allowed for quite a few tangles. I tried to place the random patterns in an interesting way. But looking at it all these years later, it feels like this one needs some stronger contrasts. It‘s a bit too even. Zentangle drawn on Official Zentangle tile using a black, Micron pen.

How do you grow? I feel like my tangling shovel dug a slice from the garden. Here, I can see the plants reaching for the sun, the soil, seeds and roots! Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen. Tangles: Fescu Keeko Quabog Quipple Sedgling Umble
