Am I An Artist?

I never ever imagined myself to be one an artist but is not every human being an artist?  

Such a confusing thought!So are you an artist or an I ?

I might not be creative in the typical sense with painting, drawing, and singing, dancing but surely there must be something I might be good at!!

Writing, debates, doing MC for so many occasions that I have lost count does not qualify as being an artist but it does involve being creative! How about when many a time an impromptu cover up for numerous  slip ups and goof ups!

Well, I can’t draw a straight line to save my life but I have discovered a new love, a step ahead to my love of doodling. It is Tangling.

I have been eagerly following Laurel since I learned about Tangling from her posts during the 2014 A to Z Challenge.

Yes they both doodling and tangling are not the same thing; quite different in fact. 

Know more about Zentangle here
“The Zentangle Method is an easy to learn, fun and relaxing way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.”

Few of the designs from many of artists from Tangle patterns.

I totally agree, it is a very relaxing method and perfect to unwind. Even when I am trying to copy an intricate design, the freedom to follow my strokes is quite relaxing much like doodling. Only more defined.

Also thanks to Laurel Regan @Alphabet Salad who with her exquisite designs has me hooked.
I am trying to get some what decent designs eventually.

Right now I am a work in progress!

So I would still not call myself very creative and probably not an artist.

Here are a few pictures of my first attempts at tangling…….. 

Few initial designs for practice.

Tell me what you think? 

Am I on my way to being an artist?
