Here is an update for Round Robin #32. It's a cross stitch sampler that is passed around the world to various stitchers who add a piece of their own depending on the theme created by the original stitcher.

4" x 6" Zentangle Sun

Here is a 4" x 6" Zentangle watercolor painting that is listed on ETSY this month. As you can probably tell when reading through my blog, I love painting suns. I'm working my way up to larger scale paintings. It's a process. I'm hoping to reach the 11" x 14" by the end of 2016. For me.... the smaller paintings are easier to do. The larger ones are a challenge. Do you think I can do it? 

This year I worked on 1" x 1", 2" x 2", 2.5" x 3.5", 4" x 6", and 5" x 7". Next will be 8" x 10".
