[Zentangle?? Huh?? What?? Read about it here.]
This week, the Zentangle Diva, Laura Harms, challenged us to produce a tile using only straight lines — maybe a little ironic the week after Irish citizens voted by a large margin to amend their Constitution to provide for marriage equality. 😉
My first thought was to do a mono-tangle tile using just Paradox since that is a straight line tangle which paradoxically produces a curvi-linear look. Then I decided that was too obvious, so I ended up with a sampler of straight line tangles, tangleations and maybe a few
figments of my imagination inventions.
Some of you know I’ve been quite peripatetic lately. I’m not home today, but I’m a lot closer than Turkey, Israel, Spain or Miami. I’m in Brigantine, New Jersey, where we go to escape the Philadelphia summer muggies. Between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day here in the United States, Philadelphians are known to engage in a mass exodus “down the shore” to the southern New Jersey beach towns. Permanent residents of these towns even have a not entirely flattering name for us — “shoobies“.
The New Jersey shore might not have the same exotic reputation as the Costa Brava, Tel Aviv or South Beach in Miami, but for us, going there does not involve any interactions with the TSA as it’s only an hour drive from home and it has its beautiful moments. I’ll be tangling here as much as possible this summer.
Brigantine sunsets are ……… In this case, a picture is indeed worth a thousand words.
