It was time to paint our hallway. (Actually it's been time to paint our hallway for quite a while!)
But, how would we preserve Maria's lettering on the wall?
Maria grabbed a level and a T-square and drew a line around it. She told the painter to stay outside the line.
After the paint dried, it was time to grab a Sakura® IDenti™Pen and tangle a Zentangle border:
Here's a closer look:
On the other side of that stained glass window is our kitchen. The window is just above the kitchen sink. Maria didn't want to look at a wall when she did dishes, so she had an arched window cut into the wall. Then she took some stained glass classes and made that window.
After it was installed, one Mothers' Day, she lettered above it on the hallway side.
The Zentangle frame is approximately 38 x 32 inches (96 x 81 cm). Quote is by Albert Camus.
