Echoes. I think the multiple echoes that tie up this tile are the tangle and the circular repetitions. The shapes of the Marasu and the Cogwheel echo each other. Putting the Fescu on either side of the center creates balance. Finally having the top and bottom Pinwheels echo provide a nice contrast to the more organic designs.

Conservatory. For some reason, this tile reminds me of an old-fashioned, Victorian conservatory. I see the tile floor, the elaborate swirls of the wicker furniture and the plants.

Hide-n-seek. So, I drew the Marbaix tangle from the random jar two days in a row! I also got another “new” tangle: B‘Dylan, which I like a lot. This time, I hid part of the Marbaix medallion under another section, and I think it works better here. It adds contrast, but doesn‘t entirely take over the tile.

Under the tree. I couldn‘t resist creating a tile that looked like Christmas presents under the tree! Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen. Tangles: Black Box Checkers Purrlyz Repeat Pattern Stacks Sabi Verdigogh

Supermoon

Supermoon. Tonight‘s full moon will be the closest to earth since 1948. Take some time and go out an actually look at it in person. Think about how vast and amazing the universe is. I decided to draw this to experiment with some new tools for drawing on black backgrounds. I‘ve had this card stock for years. I bought a ream of it over 20 years ago, and at this point, I have no idea which company it came from.
