"Music to My Eyes"

My friend, Sarah, teaches piano in her new home. She loves Zentangle and asked if I would help her do a mural in her new studio. Of course!! It started out that we were to tangle around an upright which was delivered, but then returned when a defect was discovered. The initial tangle idea was scrapped when a new baby grand arrived. It's a beautiful baby and as it turns out, was even more fun to tangle around. Here are some in-progress photos. It will probably be a couple weeks before the final touches and shading is complete. Thanks to Sandy Bartholomew for sharing her expertise on what materials worked for her when she recently did a wall. And thanks to Lois Stokes for the title of this project: "Music to My Eyes". As "inspiration is cross pollination"...aren't we lucky? This is too much fun! Check out our little helper, Rambo (aka Sniglets in my mind), as he basks in the calm of Zentangle.

  1. What a fun project! Look forward to seeing it finished.

    Side story: We rented a flat in Toronto when we were first married where the previous occupant owned a grand piano. He had painted the wall behind the piano a very dark blue - and obviously didn't shift the piano to do it because the wall behind it was white. So when we moved in we had a very odd paint job in the living room. Great conversation piece!

  5. Hopefully, the project will be finished in a week or two. I heard that more tangles have been added since I've seen it. Exciting!

  6. Nice! But, boy that PIANO is looking rather bland... Sharpie makes a WHITE oil-based marker too. Just saying. :-)

  7. Ha ha ha! Well, Sandy, anything is possible....one stroke at a time, right? The wall owners are brave to go this far, I have to say. It would be miraculous for someone to actually do that to a brand new baby grand. I would love to see it happen.
