100 days turned out to be more than 100.  I didn't follow the schedule and it was hard to let go of the deadline, but realistically, they were many days that I didn't even hold a pencil.  But I am determined, I will finish. 

What have I learned about my style?
I favor organic, representational yet not realistic forms.  Layers, patterns and hidden details add to my compositions.  Watercolors are my happy place, although almost any watermedia would do.  

Overall, I keep learning I can do things I thought I couldn't, and that is empowering.  Taking time to experiment is like taking time to meditate, it is clearing things up.

oh yeah, what is Zentangle? is a meditative way of drawing and creating patterns, 1 layer or stroke at the time.  It is usually done on small square tiles and they are non-representational.  It is another form of doodling.  

and this is how I used the principle of pattern doodling in a piece
