The Divine Dove Zentangle

Things have been going...well, I guess just going here Iately. Father's Day is tomorrow, and I have lots of feelings, but I don't feel compelled to write about them. I decided I'd try the Divine Dove Zentangle. I'd rather Zentangle. So, I wasn't intending to, but I...

Thank You for Being a Friend
