First Day - Morning

Everyone's here at the first day of Zentangle Master Class and we're having so much fun.

We'll do a few extra blogs during Master Class because there's so much going on to share.

As you know, we're at IYRS, a boat building school. There are a couple guys working on their boats at the same time and it's great to see (and occasionally hear) the two artforms - putting pen to paper and putting tools to wood.


People are collaborating . . .


Having a great time . . .



 and are focused on creating some wonderful Zentangle art.



We started out the morning working on illuminated letters. Here's an example overlayed by a 15th century manuscript detail.



Here's a peek at some works in progress . . .







The day is beautiful here. Here's a look outside the side door.



And here's a view from the restaurant next door.



More later!

Whispering Aloha to everyone in the Master Class and feeling like I'm almost there with your wonderful photos. I too am illuminated, as I sit in breathless anticipation of your next stroke.

Just as I was wondering how I would embellish an initial as a gift for my niece's new digs....THANKS for the inspiration! I feel lucky to have gotten a peek at what you all are doing. Looking forward to more tomorrow.

OMG! I am so there in spirit! These pics are great. Of course I ask myself, if I was there... Zentangle? look at boats... Zentangle? look at boats. It would be a real choice toss up!
