As some of you may be aware my father passed away yesterday around 6:00 A.M. I felt the need to sit down today and create a piece of Zentangle® Inspired Art for him. I was not sure what I would do, so I started like you do with any tangle. First I added a border. Then a string, the string ended up with a spiral type pattern, with six other areas around the spiral. This made my decision for patterns easy, I decided to make the spiral represent mom and dad finally joined together again in the eternal dance. The other six sections would represent each of the six kids. I selected a tangle for each section that started with the first letter of each persons name. I stuck with the original 106 patterns that are in the Guide I have.
Patterns and Names
Dad: (John): Jonqal - Starts with Jon, and looks almost like a dance floor.
Mom (Vivian): Vega - Creates a feel of pillars to to, and mom was the pillar of the family.
Roy (Me): Rick's Paradox
Here it is, I hope you like it wherever you are dad.
