A basic component of Zentangle is its concept of the elegance of limits. Limits of a deadline inspire creative juices to flow. Understanding our mortality, we can more deeply appreciate our blessings.
So too, our Zentangle concept of string and tangle sets in motion a dynamic that is simultaneously limiting and liberating.
Yesterday, Maria limited herself to strings and tangles of only straight lines. If you have seen any of Maria's creations, you can understand how challenging this was.
We encourage you to appreciate and play with limits and to use them as an inspiration to further creativity - in your art, and in your art of life.
To explore further this concept of limits, we recommend Gyorgy Doczi's The Power of Limits, Proportional Harmonies in Nature, Art, and Architecture.
