Potted Cacti

Artist: Sandra Strait, United States
Artist Statement: Zentangle®-Inspired Art work relies on patterns that can be found everywhere, and I love creating my templates using scenes I encounter in everyday life. The inspiration for ‘Potted Cacti’ came from a display that I saw while shopping one day. Everything screamed Zentangle to me, from the texture of the cactus to the flowered pots in which they were planted. As soon as I got home, I drew this page based on the memory of that display.

MEDIA: Ink (fountain pen)
SURFACE: Alpha Series – Heavyweight – 160 gsm – White – Cold Press Finish
