How to draw SUNDY

Zentangle pattern: Sundy. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Today’s cool new tangle Sundy comes to us on a holiday Mondy!

Sundy is from a fellow Floridian, CZT Barbara Burgess and it’s her first tangle on the site. If you’re near The Villages in Florida, visit Barb’s website to learn when she has classes scheduled.

Barb introduces herself and tells us how her Sundy tangle came about.

I am a cancer patient and was introduced to Zentangle at the cancer hospital in their Arts in Medicine program in 2012. I was so amazed by it that I did lots of research and saw patterns everywhere!

I thought I knew a lot until I took my first class with a CZT in early 2013. I found out that I didn’t know much at all.

After that, I decided that I wanted to teach this amazing technique. I was hoping to volunteer at the cancer center which is 79 miles from my home. I went to CZT training and again, found that I really didn’t know as much as I thought.

I learned so much and couldn’t wait to get back and start teaching. It turns out that I could not teach at the cancer center because they wanted a 3 day a week commitment. Because it was so far away, that was not possible. However, whenever I have extra time while I am there for my treatments, I will go into the Arts in Medicine room and show anyone who is interested, how to start Zentangle. I have even worked with some of the volunteers so they would know a little bit more. My motto is: ‘There is no cancer when I am tangling!’

This particular pattern came to me one Sunday during Sunday school class. I have found that I am able to focus on Zentangle and still be totally aware of my surroundings. I am involved in the class and conversation. I am even able to crack a joke (along with my teacher) while I am tangling. Rick Roberts told me that it is called focusing outward. So, that is why I call this pattern Sundy.

Sundy is a simple grid-based tangle with many options for filling it’s various shapes with ink or graphite.

Barb illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Sundy below and she features it in a Zentangle tile with some Zentangle-original tangles.

Happy Memorial Day

The gravestones at Arlington National Cemetery are decorated by U.S. flags on Memorial Day weekend.

The gravestones at Arlington National Cemetery are decorated by U.S. flags on Memorial Day weekend.

Today in the U.S. we celebrate Memorial Day to honor and commemorate all the brave American men and women who gave their lives in military service to this country and made it possible for us to enjoy our precious freedom.

As we enjoy time with our families and friends and the traditional beginning of Summer today, let’s pause for a moment and give thanks for those souls and their families, all who made the ultimate sacrifice. Bless them, and all those who serve.

The National Moment of Remembrance, established by Congress, asks Americans, wherever they are at 3 p.m., local time, on Memorial Day, to pause in an act of national unity for a duration of one minute. The time 3 p.m. was chosen because it is the time when most Americans are enjoying their freedoms on the national holiday. The Moment does not replace traditional Memorial Day events; rather, it is an act of national unity in which all Americans, alone or with family and friends, honor those who died in service to the United States.
