A Tangle Fish

Hi Everybody!

Today it's cold, grey and cloudy outside, so I'm having a fun day at home. I was out nearly all day yesterday, went for a meal and then did some shopping with friends, but will write more about that on Tuesday.

Today I have an A3 zentangle piece to share. Yes, it's huge! I have been doing a lot of doodling lately, especially when I'm at my group. It keeps me busy and I can still chat with the others....

The river is still rather full, and will probably stay so the next couple of weeks as there is more snow, sleet and rain on its way:

Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!


  1. Great piece of 'doodling' that looks surprised to find itself becoming a fish.

  2. WOW your fish is Amazing Valerie!! What a fabulous work! Idle hands- not you! heehee

  3. Love this fishy tangle, and all the little pictures and images inside it - fun and fantastic work! Nice photos, too, but it does look cold and grey. Glad you had a fun day yesterday. Enjoy your at home day! Hugs, Sarah

  4. great zentangle and love your you know about
    where you cann sell your photos ??

    1. I don't want to sell my photos, anyone can take them for personal use

  5. We are warmer today but very grey also. Oh these dark days get tiresome for sure. But you sounds like you've been having lots of fun and I think your fish sure shows that. It is cool. :) Too pretty for any fisherman to catch. Have a great weekend. Hugs-Erika

  6. oh my gosh the photos are beautiful,, even grey days have their own beauty,, that zentangle is utterly amazing! The work you put into it,, I can just imagine how satisfying this was to do, I used to love doing them too!

  7. Valerie, your Zentangle Fish is gorgeous, so intricate and your beautiful~

    Happy Weekend!

  8. Your zentangle is beautiful. I love doodling and creating a picture. :) Doodling is very calming.

    The water does look full- but I am loving all the birds! :)

    Have a lovely day!

  9. Your zentangle is a work of art, fantastic! It is at this time of year when I think we are all ready to be done with winter. Beautiful photos.

  10. I Love your zentangle fish. What fun!
    Snow, sleet and rain. Yikes!
    As always, I enjoyed your photos.
    Have a fun weekend.

  11. This zentangle fish is incredible. What an absolute beauty.

    I can't believe you are set to get sleet, snow, and more rain, because everything looks so green and lush, almost like spring has arrived in your world! Hope your weekend is relaxing.

  12. That is very beautiful!!! Your art is so precise!!!
    Thanks for the wonderful birds!!!

  13. Fabulous photos, and your fish is amazing Valerie!

  14. What a beautiful creation and photos!

  15. This is really cool, Valerie. I have tried my hand at tangle doodling, but find I don't have the patience (or knack for consistency) for repeating the same pattern over and over. Your fish is marvelous. hugs, Teresa

  16. Love the FISH!!!! It's been forever since I've done any Tangles ... mabe I should try to see if it will jump start my create drive which is stuck in neutral :( Love all of the river photos and the one with the birds lined up on the railing is my favorite.
    Finally feeling more human here and actually have some energy !!! YEAH!!!
    Hope the rest of your weekend is good.
    We are expecting snow and ice tonight and tomorrow so must get my running around done today. :)

  17. WOW - your doodling looks fabulous. Great photos and that row of gulls look as if they are fed up with the cold!
    Have a lovely weekend.

  19. Valerie i'm loving your (not so little) Fishy.. I keep looking deeper into it and keep seeing different things, it's rather entrancing. Great source of enjoyment on a grand scale. Wishing you a super weekend, warm wishes Tracey x

  20. was für ein grossartiger fantasievoller Tanglefisch. So schön deine Fotos von all der Vogelwelt am Rhein!
    Ich wünsche dir ein schönes Wochenende!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  21. This is an amazing doodle page. I loved the fish and then looking closer saw all the details you doodled in the body, fantastic art.
    Super photos as well Valerie, the gulls standing in a row have me thinking of the childhood tune of Ten green Bottles standing on the wall. It would be much more fun to sing about Ten Grey Gulls.
    Have a good weekend.

  29. What an amazing tangled piece Valerie, I would be sat with a pen and a piece of white paper 'cos I get the monkey with the cymbals in my head when I have to doodle, but you make it look so easy.
