zentangle #25 - Tear Drops

A week ago this past Friday my friend lost her brother... and this past Monday I was getting ready for work and was thinkg about starting a new drawing before I went to work and a tear drop shape came to mind... and this is how I started and my progress through the week and the final outcome is the last drawing....
and as I progressed... I started filling in the tear drops... thinking of my friend and her loss... and losses that my family has had....

I then decided to add some one needs to celebrate the life of one who has just passed... as tears my be for a sad feeling they can also be for happy memories...

I don't usually add colors to my drawings at this point but for some reason it just called for it and I also had the urge to draw lines to create the look of binder paper...  I used to "doodle" on binder paper....

The color just called to me in this drawing...

The final results....

I found the quote when I was almost finished.... not sure who the quote is from it did not say. I am not sure if you would call this a zentangle but that is what I am calling it. It is a sad thing when you loose some one and hopefully we can always remember the good times and things about them.... as I remember my best friend and when I would spend the night we would read Nancy Drew books by flash light as we were supposed to be asleep....  thanks for looking.
