Zentangle 9: Color with Mixed Media Book
This is what happens once you begin doing Zentangle, a meditative style of graphic design. This particular image began as a watercolor I painted in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico titled "Cabo Hibiscus." Several years later, I improved it with Zentangle and it is now "Tangled Hibiscus." It is one of two of my paintings included in Suzanne McNeill's book, "Zentangle 9."

As the traveling 2012 National Watercolor Exhibition passed through Texas in Grapevine, the Society of Watercolor Artists in Fort Worth was included. This is from the NWS magazine.
"Collections XI", 2019 is the publicaton representing the 11th Merging Visions Exhibit and the ninth issue of the publication, Collections. Since it's inception in 2008, artwork by Darla Bostick has been a part of this event---paired, in conjunction with the Denton Poets' Assembly along with the Visual Arts of Texas Society. It is a beautiful collaboration of both poets and visual artists to join the written word with the visual image. In 2010 funds were garnered to publish a lovely book that presents both the image and the poem. The local libraries of Denton have also suported this venue.
