I have surely missed Adele Bruno's It's a String Thing challenges every week while my 100 Days of Zentangle project was ongoing! This week, although chronically late, I've actually finished a tile! I'm so lost on weekends, now I'm not posting on Saturday and Sunday, I'm glad I have it! This week's challenge introduces Zentangle's... Continue Reading →
Welcome back to thetirelesstangler.com and also pattern-collections.com. I have another terrific Artist Focus post for you. Many months ago, I did my first artist focus on a friend from the UK, Sarah Fowler. This week’s artist in focus is Philippa Napper, who is my 2nd artist from England. Philippa is an artist for whom art seems instinctual.... Continue Reading →
Happy Halloween! I'm so glad to finally bring you a new artist focus and this week I have something really special to share. You will have to read on to see what I mean! These artist focus articles have become my favorite part of blogging. To discover such richness of art and especially a bit... Continue Reading →
When I began this post, I had a completely different direction in mind, but the more I wrote, the more it morphed into what it is. I want to share with you something encouraging to me. In the Facebook groups centering around the Zentangle® Art form, there is always a pivotal moment when new artists... Continue Reading →
"One of my favorite things about Zentangle isn’t just the art, it’s the sense of community, love, friendship, and positive support from people I don’t even know."
我備感榮幸可以為這位禪繞畫認證教師同時也是藝術家的Ching Weng(白雪老師)寫一個專題。她來自台灣，我覺得在不同語言中要一起努力合作是很有趣也富挑戰性的。我們都是用Google翻譯來溝通，雖然常常翻譯不精準，我們還是試圖用這個方法一起合作完成這篇文章。 以下是這位亞裔藝術家Ching Weng(白雪)用她的語言-中文，翻譯給使用中文的人們閱讀的，包含他的家人、朋友與粉絲們。在中文文章的下方，是我用英文撰寫的文章給所有Ching Weng(白雪)在英語世界的粉絲與朋友們閱讀。(希望也有一點我的粉絲) 我當一位翻譯者已經許多年。當然，其中不包括中文 ! 對我來說能夠用這種方式跨越文化跟語言的隔閡真的十分有趣。 這裡有翻譯的按鈕可以給讀者直接點擊，但是基於我想要能妥當的傳達在這次合作中的文化多元性，我希望讓白雪老師親自用他的母語來撰寫翻譯中文版本。再者，儘管距離很遠，但是在心靈上和冥想作畫以及畫禪繞圖樣的方式也會是大家所能共享的一個經驗。也許這些文化與地區的不同就是所有禪繞畫愛好者最大的共通點。 I am incredibly honored to focus this week on Certified Zentangle Teacher, and artist Ching Weng (Snow). She is in Taiwan and it has been especially fun and challenging working between languages! We are using Google Translate to communicate and while it isn't perfect, we've still... Continue Reading →

Personally, I am a big fan of the first picture below!... Continue Reading →
