I grabbed a couple photos of this piece before it was delivered. Maria inscribed this print of one of her illustrations. It's a great Henry David Thoreau quote, "My life is like a stroll along the beach, as near the ocean's edge as I can go."
Check out the Zentangle emblished "M" (using pokeroot, paradox and purk) . . .
And this delicious golden (gouache) border embellishment using purk . . .
Many Zentangles in our gallery remind people of fanciful sea creatures. Purk is quite reminiscent of the shell pattern seen in to top right of this print. If you haven't seen it before, check out some images from our gallery here.
