Illustration Friday – Spent


"She spent all her money on seeds, so that the world could grow peace one seed at a time." I started working on this piece a few weeks ago for my home show in November and just finished it Friday. I couldn't resist tying in the Illustration Friday theme of Spent. It may be a far reach, but I love the message, especially of late.

I love this! I've been doing zentangles, and these remind me of those kinds of patterns, with the addition of wonderful colors...

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone! I wasn't familiar with the word zentangle - so glad you mentioned it because my work all along has had elements of it in there. Especially the early ink pieces I did. Can't wait to look at zentangle artists on the web!
