Frank and Susan Collaborate

Above is their final result.  Susan told Frank, our next-door neighbor, that doodling was really an art form called Zentangle and if he would just start giving his doodling (could that word be any weirder?) an art form name it would mean he actually was an artist.

So Frank produced this doodle, I mean Zentangle, while he was on a phone call one day and gave it to Susan.
Susan scanned it in her computer and started playing with it with Photoshop Elements 2.0, which she refuses to upgrade*.  The beginning is below and the final result is at the top of this post.

Susan speaks: Upgrading just gives me grief. I made the fatal mistake of upgrading Microsoft's Street & Trips 2009 to the 2013 version. How is it possible for a company like Microsoft to totally ruin a decent product? How can they take a road that was in use in 2009 and still exists today and runs for nearly 300 miles and is heavily traveled and completely remove it from the program? How can it be that IE 10 is slower than IE 9? Why is the sky blue?

Wow! Cool! Not familiar with the program she used but love the results. Hope Frank was pleased. And yes, his doodly (zentangle) is art!

I like this, they should collaborate more often!
