Plein Air Zentangle® & Car Donuts


Pen, Paper & Pencil



I drew this Zentangle sitting at a picnic bench in a park.  Heaven.  Note the various circular patterns on the right-hand side.

I then drove to a movie theater but parked far from the doors as I found a hint of shade.  Emerging from my vehicle, I saw these car tire donuts.

Paint, Rubber & Asphalt
The circular shapes reminded me of my drawing.  I moved my car so I could stand on the trunk and take this overview shot.

Then, a multiple exposure of the scene.

Pixels



Maybe I will try a drawing like this photographic abstraction.  Maybe I should slather my car tires with paint and drive on large sheets of paper.

What do you suggest?

Love it, John.

You know you've got it bad when. . . . . car donuts attract your eye!

You could run a matchbox car on an inking pad. . . .

DRAW your own conclusions.
