So the rule is to throw away the symmetry in these. I am still not there, but it was a bit easier. I am having fun with my birds. (I have always been seen as a bit "cuckoo"!)

I have had one issue with Zentangle art - my art can be very rigid. I tend to follow the "rules" too much. A straight line should look like a straight line - no wobbliness. So, to say the least, I often become frustrated when creating my art because my hands are nowhere near steady - I have to really lose myself to overcome that feeling. So I turn to whimsy. There is no perfection in whimsy - in fact, just the opposite. Assymetrical lines are the norm, not symmetrical. And after spending 50 years in the legal world, the straight line is the rule!! So I need to break that. I am taking a couple of different on-line lessons. One I am taking is "Quirky Birds" by Willowing Art. I am having so much fun with this - I want to share one of my Quirky Birds I turned into a greeting card for a friend who is moving.
