I am undergoing chemotherapy for multiple myeloma. An important outlet for me is Zentangle(R), a meditative art form created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas which contributes to pain management and increased focus. It is based on combining structured patterns to create unique images which are non-representational and can be viewed from any angle, with no right or wrong. The Zentangle logo "Anything is possible one stroke at a time(C)" is a good guiding principle for anyone on the journey through treatment. This piece is drawn with a black Micron pen on a standard Zentangle 3-1/2" heavy weight artist tile. I have been practicing Zentangle for several years and teach Zentangle for a local cancer support group.
