Gloria J Zucaro's "Lakebreeze Courtyard Fountain"

Here is one of my latest pastels.  I had a photo of the water feature in my townhouse courtyard at Lakebreeze Ct.. The townhouse sold in early May, thanks to my Realtor Louis Zucaro :>) The picture inspired me to start my new gardens here at Rosewood.  How could I not be inspired when my new address has such a pretty name.  I am posting this to Paint Party Friday

Before I forget, I have four pastel paintings in the Dole Gallery at Lakeside Legacy Galleries in Crystal Lake ,IL.  A group of artist friends called "The Watercooler Ladies" are showing with me. The first Friday of every month the Legacy Galleries have an opening celebration for the groups of artists on display that month. There is an open bar, great food, and this June we will have the Suzuki Strings again.  So if you live in the area and would like to come to see two different exhibits and relax with a beverage and some nibbles, come on out on  Friday June 6th from 5  PM until 8 PM. here is the Facebook link.

Gloria J Zucaro's "Laura's Cake"

This week's Diva challenge by Laura Harms is to use only two Zentangle designs.  "Well" and "Punzel".  I decided to make a cake for Laura's 34 birthday which she celebrated on Monday.  The "Punzel" design is used for the candles and the icing around the bottom of the cake.  I found that design very difficult to keep even, but it is the rule not to erase but accept what happens! The top and bottom backgrounds are variations of "Well".  Many beautiful design were done this week by other artists checked in to Laura's site.

Have a great week and don't catch the "bug" that is going around like I have!

Gloria J Zucaro's "Laurole 1, 2, 3", 4"

On Laura Harms site "I am the Diva" she asked us to do a tangle using her new Zentangle pattern, and come up with a name for it.  Because of the circles and her first name, I decided on "Laurole".  Here is the finished version, then the steps going back to my design's beginning step.  I am posting to and to Paint Party Friday.  Have a great weekend.
