Following on my last post, Kimmie at art in redwagons showed some pebbles that she drew on that look like painted Easter eggs. Mmm - do you think I will be very conspicuous if I take some pebbles into a meeting to draw on....

Look at this - the most productive meeting at work I've been to in a long time! The other day whilst reading art in redwagons blog I watched the video Kimmie had included showing Milliande drawing an amazing zentangle in 8 minutes. I've seen these on various blogs but never thought I could do one but watching the video made me realise that none of the actual drawing was beyond me. This morning I was in a very tedious meeting so I thought I'd have a go and above are the results. They are done on cheap writing paper and are only about 2 inches wide plus I smudged 2 of them a bit but it was a definite improvement on my usual practice of either filling in the enclosed areas of letters like o and a on the minutes and agendas or practising writing with my left hand! In fact, when I brought them home and showed my daughter she didn't believe at first that I had drawn them - she knows my drawing skills! So now I'm actually looking forward to more boring meetings so I can practise some more!
