The Diva's Challenge...

The Diva's Challenge for this week involves making a zentangle inspired piece of art having something to do with the earth, in honor of Earth Day. This can be interpreted ever so loosely as anything to do with the earth, such as vegetation or rocks. I was already working on this Calvary zentangle and thought it would do nicely since it depicts vegetation, rocks and the earth's atmosphere. I enjoyed working all of the different tangles in to depict various aspects of the picture, though we all know that a tangle is not supposed to represent anything real. :)

I'm hoping to do a second piece for this challenge, but I thought I'd submit this now, in case I don't get around to finishing a second one. I'm not 100% satisfied with this. I think the clouds and sun may be too cartoony for the serious subject matter, but experimentation is what it's all about and we learn from every piece we do! :)

To see more zentangle art go to the Diva's Weekly Challenge page and click on the artists' links!

Have fun tangling with those tangles!



  1. This is so great! I love your zentangle clouds:) I think the fun sun and sky is a great touch because even though the cross can be seen as a serious thing, the result is one of joy and happiness for us Christians (as I'm sure you know:)! So I think this is perfect!

    1. Thanks for making me feel better about it,Dianne! :D

  2. i love this! the sanibelles look great under the cross!

  3. I love the choice of tangles you've used. The sanibelle makes beautiful vegetation and the clouds look like they are rolling in the sky.


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
