Challenge # 10 - The Space Between

The weekly challenge on the I am the Diva blog is called "The Space Between" and it's about creating a tile or Zentangle inspired piece being aware of the space between the tangles, leaving some white space. 

Sometimes people do tend to forget that there are no patterns, figures, objects, words etc without space between them. This space defines the object... It's like the saying: ""There's no music without the pause between the music notes" (or something like this...;-)  )

I created a very simple Zentangle with some coloring to emphasize the effect of space between the patterns. Yes, I know it's not my most wonderful Zentangle, but it clearly states what "The Space Between" can mean for your drawing. Or even for your life.... We all need a pause, break, rest every now and then to become more aware of our surroundings and really learn to appreciate what's surrounding us. Don't you think so?

Wow, did I really learn something these past 45 years? LOL ;-)

Okay, here it comes:


A part of me is saying: "Do you really have to share this ZT with other people? It's not such a special or beautiful Zentangle..." But on the other hand, what's wrong with simplicity? Life is already as complicated as it is...

  7. This tile is such a beauty… I just love it BECAUSE of its simplicity. The colored shading is awesome!
    (To be honest, I often feel stressed when I look at drawings that are excessivly filled with patterns. I like the calm of tangles like this – that´s ZEN for me…)
    Thank you very much for sharing!
