|Gilbert, 2 1/2 x 3 inch, watercolor|
This is Gilbert. He came about because zentangles sounds good in theory, but when you have toddlers running around it's not so good. I ditched that idea and instead found inspiration from a painting in the children's wing of our local museum. While my children were engaged I hurriedly sketched this guy and colored him when I made it home. I've seen a couple of art bloggers suggest doing this as a way to get your mojo flowing.
He's so imperfect and it was difficult for me to share, but I think part of the art process of UNFURLING is to share your work too. So here he is...Gilbert.
