After I did my ‘practice’ Zentangle Doodle of ‘Zentangle Dove’ (Zentangle Part 1: Dove on ByShi Blog June 2 2015), I was game to give myself a challenge to do a portrait with my gorgeous friend’s amazing dachshund as my muse. I tried to do a portrait of them both, but my attempt at a portrait of my friend was far from complimentary (yes, not all my work turns out!!!), so I cut her out and just made it star her dachshund. And I’m happy with the result!
I’ve been absolutely exhausted and have had elevated pain levels since, so I think I overdid it and must pace myself before I start my next project (though I have so many ideas!!!) But I feel wonderful emotionally to have created once again. Art is definitely an ‘important prescription’ for my soul! (Thanks to my doc for the prescription – see ‘Zentangle Part 1: Dove’)

what a brilliant idea
Oh its beautiful. Such gorgeous eyes and patterns. It must have been so hard to pace doing this, it looks like fun. Definitely good soul food.
Thank you gorgeous!!!! Yes I've had to ban myself from doing more. But I look forward to doing more when I'm able, it was really fun!
Thanks so much 🙂 I'm indebted to my doc and my friend for the ideas and inspiration – and of course my gorgeous friend's dachshund as my muse!!! xx
I love it!
Thank you!!!! 🙂
