and in the end, Z is for Zest ~ the a to z of one word messages

not an orange
not Zest
but a Sophia Mandala
Wayne Stratz
No Z word mosaics  to show off as we end the challenge.  Friends suggested ZEST, and I went for it.  And to tie the this omega to the alpha, I can remember the awe of finding out one could grate the peel of a lemon or an orange and use it to create a flavor explosion.  Zest is like that.  It surprises you and leaves you filled with life. I could see us creating a one word sign. Zest in orange of course.

The first friend, who recommended it, was Zoe, who knows a thing or two about zesty fruit, check out her art here.


  1. Wonderful post! "Zest is like that. It surprises you and leaves you filled with life" — I love this; it's so true.

    It's been a pleasure to meet you through this challenge. :)

  2. Loved your post.

  3. Gorgeous color! That would look great in my daughter's window...or anyone's really, but she is a great fan of orange.

  4. I think that lovely mandala says "zest" without the labeling! Perfect ending to your alphaventures!

  5. I can almost smell it. :-)

    LOVE Zoe's fruit jewelry! I like dried fruit for Christmas tree ornaments. Or, how about a whole tree of Stratoz and Margaret stained glass!!

    Congratulations on finishing A-Z. An Artsistic-Zen accomplishment. :-)

  6. I love the colors of this piece! I am dropping in from the A to Z Road trip. Interesting posts and delightful photos!


Thanks for visiting Stratoz. I dig comments. Feel free to leave one here.
