Looks great, love it. I had acrved a tree today too :o))


Stunning Barbara, love everything about this piece, love your carved palm tree:)

Love your carved palm tree Barbara, great choice, your Zentangle doodling is super as well. That can be very addicting, just ask me....LOL
Klimt is one of my all time favs, enjoy reading your back story!




Barbara looks so wonderful I can't wait for the challenge piece from you. I just thought today I would have liked to have put a glaze of color over mine and here you have done it. Yours looks so professional not like mine but I will keep trying.


I love that green.
The palm tree is great!


Great artwork! I remember putting those designs in large bubble lettering. I never knew it had a name! I'll have to revisit my childhood art. Thank you for the inspiration!
Creatively Yours, Laura


Wow what a stunner. So fantastic. Love it.




this is fab, I love the fresh vibrant colour you used, what a fab technique too. thanks for sharing it.


Beautiful tree and background!


Barbara, I so enjoyed reading this post...it reminds me that fashion and art are closely linked and that as much as fashion "comes back" after a period of time, so do art techniques -- and as always, they are simply called something "new".


Your card is so wonderful, really stuning

Maggie Ann

Very impressive!


love your OpArt ..really great


Wow, really a wonderful card, love your carved palm and the zentangling. Great bright green colour ... I think, my blog will be one, on which you won't find Zentangles and Carved Stamps ;-)


Golly Barbara, that's a great palm tree!! I can't imagine carving into wood... I have enough trouble with lino blocks (which I have now stopped 'wearing'!!)I can understand why both are popular and I tend to agree with you about commercialising the tangles. However, it's a bit like 'Painting by Numbers', isn't it? I guess people have to start somewhere... I was very inspired reading about Gloria Page in the peek inside her book about carved artstamps. Interesting woman! I love your 'social commentaries' - food for thought!! :-]

Woo Hoo! Barbara, thank you for the visit down memory lane! Those zentangles were all the rage back in the day-LOL. I want to let you know, I'm adding you to my blog roll-I Love your blog and your art truly rocks! I adore palm trees, I can't imagine cutting this from wood! Wow!!


Amazing work! I can't imagine doing that!

Love this bright color, and your carved palm tree is amazing!
