Day Twenty Six, Creation Twenty Six

My heart is heavy today. It is with sadness that I tell you that I just lost my grandmother. I found out late yesterday as I was creating this very tile. Even though I knew she was sick and could leave us anytime now, once the news was given, it is still came as a shock.

My grandmother’s name was Tillie, and I have many fond memories growing up with her in my life. As I adjusted to the news, I picked up my pen to continue creating this tile; seeking solace by drawing. The result are those very memories given life with each line that is drawn.

The pain is still very fresh, but I wanted to share what was created as I remembered my grandmother- not how she left this world, but as the healthy vibrant grandparent that helped raise me.

I dedicate this creation to her.

  1. Sorry to hear about your loss. Glad to hear you push through and complete your Zentagle. Doing something creative sometimes aids in the healing process. Stay strong.

  2. I can honestly say that this is the best Zentangle I have gazed my eyes upon. What a profound image of Thanksgiving and the sadness of loss that comes with it. Art and poetry are amazing paths of therapy. Keep pressing forward honey.

  3. I’m so glad you are hanging on to those lovely memories. Such a beautiful way to show your love and loss by creating your very special tangles. Keep making new tangles as you find each memory bringing new love storys of your grandmother and you. So glad you like Inktense – try adding a medium for use on fabric, even tho you’re using paper, and see them zing. Cold wax makes them even brighter if you burnish it when cold. Look forward to seeing what you produce.
