Here is my third Zendala, also known as mandala 45 of 100!
Can you see where I miscalculated? There are no mistakes in Zentangle® and it all worked out!
I don’t generally post my photography on this blog, but I think I will share my art observations. This Chihuly exhibit at New York Botanical Garden was really wonderful and I recommend it to anyone going to New York City this summer/fall.
Some of my favorite blooms in the NYBG were made of glass at the Dale Chihuly glass studio. Like this one.

Art Party The art party would include each person getting a Zentangle® gift bag that would include a pen, pencil, tortillion, and 5 Zentangle® tiles. These are either the basic 3.5 inch Zentangle® tiles or the Apprentice® (bigger) tiles depending on the age of the participants. The gift bag would be for them to take home. I would provide 2.5 hours of instruction and we would decorate 2 additional tiles during the party. One set of the tiles could be assembled into a mosaic with an image that would be meaningful to the guest of honor. The participants would not know about the overall design until we put it together in the mosaic. This would be $35/person. I would recommend this package for adults and children over age 9.
