Discoveries, Challenge #85
When a string goes onto a drawing surface, for me, there is this moment (or sometimes passages of very long moments) that I think, "What am I going to do with THAT?"
Today was such a day. Margaret Bremner has inspired this weeks challenge from the Diva with her tangle Copada. It reminds me of Russian architecture and for some reason I was having difficulty incorporating it into my tile. So in Zentangle fashion, I just drew a string and had a go at it without thinking. Well, if I say so myself , this ZIA is one that I needed to go back and look at again and again as the progression happened. What a beautiful thing.
I had no preconceptions for this work. As a matter of fact, I had thrown up my hands and was not going to continue trying. Not only did I finish with a ZIA I feel good about but, I noticed when I was done that the stormy days colors had also creeped in. I spent a gloomy afternoon creating. Happy.
Margaret, I had hoped that your tangle would have had a more prominent part in this ZIA but, it has made a fabulous frame. Thank you Margaret Bremner and the Diva for this enlightening Challenge.
