Not Knowing

"Any creative act comes out of not knowing."  Eckhart Tolle


In the process of Zentangle, there is no preconceived idea of what is to happen with the instrument in your hand. Even if you have an inkling (hmmm), chances are, the ending will look nothing like the inkling. These two tiles "happened" to me yesterday. They were lots of fun, so thought I would share (in order of how they were created)...

  1. Beautiful! I particularly like the first one, but both have impact in quite different ways.

  2. The "not knowing" is a great part of Zentangle. I love how the simple delicate ribbon runs through both tiles, but looks so different on each one. The white space on the pepper really gives it a dramatic look. Both are very pretty!

    These are fantastic. I love the simplicity of the first one and the depth of the second one.

  8. I love the first one, the way the dots in the grid "leak" out to follow the ribbons across the open areas of the tile.
