A Couple Gems

Molly came by yesterday and brought another gem that we have to share!


It's neat to trace out in your mind where Molly drew her string. That hexagonal tangle is something we've actually figured out how to do in a "Zentangle way" - in other words, a repetition of simple strokes instead of trying to "draw" it. We'll show you in some future newsletter.

We also received a wonderful bundle of thank you cards for our Zentangle presentation to our grandson's second grade class. They were all so much fun and heartwarming to read. In the interest of posting pictures of us we thought we would share this gem of a portrait that one of those students created.

Aw, I love the second one ;). Great picture... and I know you've made a huge impact on your grandson's class. They will love art forever! Way to go! :) (Love your first one too!) :)

Okay, confused... did Maria do the top one or Molly? They sign their Zentangles the same way. Confused!

Rose, that's Molly's. With the addition of that little "o" you can find all the letters for "Molly T." It's a version of her logo that she uses on her jewelry website "mollysthomas.com".

Molly has great vision! I'm drawn to the delicacy that surrounds the negative spaces.

Wow, I didn't know you had a daughter... and she has the same kind of eye that Maria has for her tangles... they write the same, was really hard to tell, but now looking again, I see the little 'o'. :) Thank you for clearing that up. :) Thought maybe that Maria had a split personality... hehe.. just kidding! Have a great day!
