Tanglescape 2 – Breakfast Doodle


Tanglescape-Zebra Technical Pen on Hahnemühle Nostalgie Postcard

Yeah, it’s totally different now, drawing these doodles while I eat breakfast. For one thing when I visited Mom at her Assisted Living, I was sitting at a table, talking with people while I doodled, so my attention was divided between talking and drawing. Usually, I drew until Mom was ready to return to her room, so some days I had quite a while to draw and others only a few minutes. So, I drew fast in order to have some sense of completion.

At home, I’m sitting in a recliner, by myself, and I have all the time I want. Mind over matter – the way I approach the drawing is totally different. If it wouldn’t be so expensive and so fattening, I’d go to a coffee shop or restaurant each day. But no use telling myself I’d just have a black coffee.

I’d be lured by the evil items in the display case and all the fancy coffee flavors listed on the board. I mean – in the name of scientific experimentation, I’d be compelled to try them all out. Right?

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. Calorie inducing temptations aside (I wouldn’t be able to resist either) there would be the noise of conversation and the sense of being a part of a community. I wish i could just come over and join you.

  2. hahaha! absolutely! you would need to try them all – one at a time. I like this drawing style – those shrubs along the right hand side are pretty nifty. I might give those a try myself 🙂

  3. Love it! You think differently when you only have pen and paper too. (I get the treats… that is probably why I don’t do that too! I don’t drink coffee, but so many tasty treats!). That’s how I got most of my arting time in over the last couple of years…. doctors appointments, hospitals, waiting rooms, rehab facilities… Now I’m missing both parents in a year. Hang in there, you will never regret it (even though it can be hella-hard). *hugs*

  4. I’m enjoying your Doodling journey through this transition in your personal life, Sandra. Thank you for sharing how and what you are feeling as you allow your hand to make marks, lines, in your inimitable way, still focused on the present moment. You’re always in my heart.
