I was feeling some pent up emotions that just weren't getting their outlet with the calming Tao Series. The first Scribble Art I created was called "Beauty in Anger." I was feeling angry, so I took the red oil pastel and scribbled all over a 14" x 17" sketchpad. I then took an 8" x 8" square template and moved it all around my crazy scribbles until I found a pleasing composition for an abstract. Once I found my composition, I taped off the 8" x 8" square and worked on creating something beautiful.

I also found this process to be meditative. By the time I finished, I was no longer angry, and I was actually quite pleased with the resulting artwork. I liked the juxtaposition of the crazy lines going into the more controlled 8" x 8" square. It reminded me of visually bringing order to chaos.
