heart zendala


Zendalas are typically done with a symmetrical type of pattern. I love doing them but sometimes it's fun to do something different. I've done this string before and it's one of my favorites. I use an empty heart in the center (well actually off center) and build tangles flowing out of the heart. - This was my second Valentines Day since my husband has passed. The rawness is fading, but I still miss him. So this empty heart is a bit symbolic of how I feel.

I did this using one of my zendalas that was previously colored with a pink watercolor. The tangles are done with a pink pen and shaded with three shades of colored pencils.

  4. This zendala appealed to me on so many levels .. first, the loving tribute to your love; secondly, the lovely string; third, the linework is gorgeous; and fourth, the coloring is beautifully done. All in all, I absolutely love it (not to mention the fact, my favorite color is pink *giggle* )
