I am the Diva Challenge 190

This is one challenge that I thought I should definitely enter.  It is all about breast cancer, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  My mom had breast cancer in her 40's.  In her late 70's and early 80's, she had numerous bouts with other cancers.  She passed away at the age of 83 from pancreatic cancer.  She never got to know about my own cancer (thank God) and never knew about Zentangle® or that I became a CZT, because of cancer!  I am entering this challenge in her memory @ I am the Diva CZT.  I am also dedicating it to the Diva's grandmother, Ardath who passed away from breast cancer.

I am also entering it in Adele Bruno's Tickled to Tangle String Thing #66.

Thanks for looking!

Till next time...

Gallery Showing and Sold Pieces

Hi all.  It has been over a month since I last posted.  I have been very busy.  On October 10th, I was a guest artist at an art gallery (Gallery East - Belleview, FL).  I had a showing of my Zentangles® and Zentiagle Inspired Art (ZIAs).  The main purpose for me was to try to get students, either at the gallery or privately.  I think I was successful in my quest.  I spoke with a lot of people and gave out a lot of business cards!  I also sold one of my pieces.  It was a 10"x10" framed butterfly.  Here is a pic of that piece, before it was framed.

This is the second piece that I have sold.  Last month, I sold blue butterfly.  It was done in a 12"x16" frame.  Larger than the one above.  You can see it in my last post.  Believe it or not, the blue one was sold online.  I put an add on a local website about the happenings in the Villages, where I live.  I saw a link for the classifieds and I just put a picture of it on the site.  The very next day, I had someone that said she wanted to buy it!  She was going to buy it unframed, but my husband had just finished matting and framing it before I got her email.  When she saw it framed, she bought the whole package!  What a thrill it was for me!

That's all I have time for right now.

Till next time...
