Well, I finished in time!  Here's my entry for the Zendala challenge #15 that Erin holds at The Bright Owl.
This was the template.
As usual, I just started without any kind of plan...
...favoring my geometric shapes, of course...
...until I ended up here.
Short and sweet today.  Not even a quote--but I will leave you with a where's the Waldo jet...
 ...(have to click to make it larger--I knew it was there and had trouble finding the small airplane dot against the clouds)... 
...and something my oldest girlfriend, Linny, (56 years and counting) sent me...and now I can't get the song out of my head--LOL!  Enjoy!!


  1. Found it!!!

    I love, love your Zendala challenge. You are so very creative! You should design cards!

  2. My Doodling books came last week, I really must post photo's of them.

    I also found out that they still do the Altaire books on Amazon. They are all based on mathematical equations, very much like the picture that you did. But I've five or six 60 pages books to go through at my leisure! ;)

  3. I found it too. Your Zendala challenge is very nice!

  4. love your design! and yes, i found the jet. :)

  5. Your Zendala is very nice! I must have missed that one..I will have to go and print it out! I am not getting too far in that dept..LOL..although I find it relaxing!
    I like your new shelf unit..I would have to paint the bottoms of the boards black too..OCD sucks some times:(

  6. hahaha! that video is aweome! the timing matches the beat of the song - awesome job whoever put this together!

  7. oh, gosh, i forgot to comment on your zendala - haha! great job - i love your geometrics!

  8. Great Zendala....quite effective!

    I managed to spot the jet ~ :)

    I absolutely LOVED the video!! So well done....COOL! Thanks for sharing.

    Love and hugs,
    Serena xo

  9. Your Zendala came out great!! Couldn't find the plane in the clouds, will have to look harder later!


  10. I'm always impressed with your zendoodles. You make them look almost easy. Wish I had your grip!

    Well, I THINK I found the plane. It was pretty hard to see and aptly named.

  11. You are the queen of geometric zendala. You should win a gold medal at the zendala Olympics.


  12. Your zendala is gorgeous! Very bright and crisp!

  13. You should be proud of that zendala, it's simply lovely! Glad to hear you're feeling spunky again. Hope you do well in the competition. Or is it one? I'm not sure.

  14. Great work! Can't wait to see more :)

  15. Your Zendella challenge turned out greeat!

    Loved that video! Had to share it with Jim.

  16. Fabulous work Rita - such precision!

    And I spotted the plane!

  17. Great tangle- love how you used the colors in the pattern! I didn't find the plane, but I did learn that my monitor is very dirty...

  18. Dear Rita, first of all, thank you for the Rita Hayworth video. I never realized that she started out as a dancer. Or if I knew that, I've forgotten it. She was quite good I think--at least from looking at these clips with her dancing with Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly.

    Second, your Zendella is lovely. You have such a fine sense of color and composition. Peace.

  19. I like how your Zendala turned out this week. Not too busy, but enough color to pop out at you.

    I found the Waldo jet too.

    Loved the Rita Hayworth video! I went to YouTube and it listed all the movies the clips are from. I don't think I've seen any of them. I'll have to keep an eye out for her movies on TCM. Anything with Fred or Gene is good watching.

  20. OK...NOW i see that little dot of a a bird with his wings spread...waaaaaaay off in the distance. you made my eyes work REALLY hard this morning! haha

    LOVE your Zendala art rita!! so creative and colorful!

    HI karma!! meow!!

  21. I loved how your zendala turned out. :)

    I found Waldo, too. ;)

    Loved the video! I love that particular song to begin with, and mixing it with clips of those old movies was ingenious! Thanks for brightening my day. :)


I appreciate your visits and comments.
Have a really great day! :) :)
