Surprise!

At the Zentangle Certification Seminar, we were all gifted with a piece of Dove candy. Inside each wrapper is a little sentence. Ever since then, I keep a bag of them on hand to treat myself once in a while. Yesterday this was my yummy little gift:
"Satisfy your sense of surprise."
I try to do what candy wrappers (and fortune cookies) tell me, so I did a Zentangle tile. One of the things I love most about the art of Zentangle is the elements of wonder and surprise. Not having a plan or expectation leads to surprise. Sometimes a it comes from the tangle itself (such as Afterglo, pictured below), but always there is that possibility at the end of each tile.

MMMM. Chocolate and a Zentangle surprise. Now that's some fun.
