NO expectation

One of the things I tried at CHA was zentangle. I really like it, but it is suppose to be relaxing an calming. Putting you in a zen state. For me it got my panties in a bundle. Oh my goodness, am I mess this design up, I want an eraser, oh man I messed up.. I hate this. I think part of the problem is expectation. I fully thought that I would have a gorgeous black and white masterpiece when I was done. Plus looking on line at the designs and messing them up. It got me thinking, maybe this is not for me right now. Which in turn got me thinking about what really does relax me…ahhh watercolor chaos…oh yeah baby that is the ticket. So, I went off looking for a new watercolor journal.  I found this handmade one..it was gorgeous but huge! Of course my boys talked me into it.

I really should measure this bad boy to know the size!



My studio assistant:

I had to get busy with it right away, with the rules no expectations and no rules. Just paint what I felt!
