Zentangle challenge #76

Click here to see more information about this weeks' challenge which is all about home. We could represent it any way we wanted. I chose to represent the location where I currently live - about 50 miles outside of Nashville, Tennessee.

I guess Nashville is most famous for country music, so I used a guitar for my zentangle "string".

I'm not really a huge fan of country music, per se, but I do love any kind of music with a guitar played well. I just love the sound of an acoustic guitar.

And I do love the Tennessee landscape. We are in a more rural area with rolling hills, old barns, and horses grazing in green pastures. (Well, not so green this summer since it is so hot and dry!) Here's a quick rough little sketch.

Thanks for visiting,


  1. Boy, both of your tiles are great. I think I like the black and white guitar the best. Great job. I agree, that when I think of Tennessee (where I've never actually been), I think of guitars, banjos, and violins or maybe "fiddles" would be a better description. I also think of rural areas, horses, barns, and mountains. Great representation by you.

  2. I love the first tile! Very balanced.

  3. What a great idea to use a guitar for a string! I love your pretty background on that first tile especially. Your little sketch is so sweet and it's just how I imagined Tennessee from your description.

  4. I love the guitar string idea. Very nice tangles within it and without. Thanks for the sketch of the rural area near-by also.

  5. What a fantastic representation of Nashville. I am really happy to see what you have done with this challenge!
