I am the diva Challenge #79: Citius, Altius, Fortius

This week's challenge is hosted by Rho Densmore and focuses on the meaning of the Olympics and the five colored Olympic rings. The message that Rho is trying to convey in this weeks challenge is that  the outcome is not as important as participating in the process.  Like the art of Zentangle where, one stroke at a time, we take a journey to the final outcome, whatever that outcome might be.  It is the process itself which is meditative and creative, the outcome may or may not be what we had envisioned.


I wasn't sure where this particular Zentangle was going to lead me, but it flowed onto the paper and this was the result.
