The Alphabet Paintings - Z

So here I am, the last of the alphabet paintings :)
Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend. 

For my Z painting, I chose to paint

Zen Rock Garden



There's something quite fascinating about this painting, because if you stare at it long enough the rocks seem to levitate!

Thank you all so much for sticking with me through the Alphabet series.
I hope you've enjoyed them, and if you would like to see them all together go HERE

Now I'm off to visit all your blogs :) 
Ta-ta for now!

  2. Hi Pat,
    Fascinating rock garden. It looks so peaceful there. I like the presence of red rock in the pile. Beautiful.

  3. And when you are done, the alphabet tells us a bit about you, don't you agree? Anyway my favorites would be the canoe, diamond, fluke, Missy, Oscar...but wait, that would tell you a bit about me! Wonderful alphabet and I commend you for completing it! (That says a bit about you also).

    Thank you Susan. I don't know what my alphabet says about me, apart from my subjects are diverse :lol: xx

  11. Thanks Tito, glad you liked it :) xx

    Thank you Sonia, I like to be a little different :) xx

    So they do, Kathryn! Pale background, while the wash is wet, flick in a darker sticky mix of the same colour - and that's how I did it! xx

  13. I love it! It's got a surreal, Roger Dean album cover style to it (showing my age now). Do you have a real physical Zen garden then, Pat?
