Today's tile is by Rick, no surprise here! He has his favorite tangles, his "mac'n'cheese tangles," (although I cannot remember the last time I actually witnessed him eat mac'n'cheese), but I digress. . .
As I reflect on the number of times he uses these two tangles, I realize why we call them "Rick's paradox" and "Rick's flux". I must admire his focus as he tangles. Nothing seems to break his concentration. I have found him to be a true Renaissance man, one who has profound proficiency in a number of fields: a lifelong student, never seeming to reach the end, where he gets the diploma. Hmmmm.
And his tangling, (one of his expertises!) well, it seems to thrive on this beautiful "renaissance tile," which Rick and Maria sometimes call a "tan tiles." He has been reflecting on many things lately, and it shows in this tile. He has taken the triangular-shaped paradox(es) and mirrored them to create these fantastical shapes. They bring to mind those huge grand fans of exotic fronds that others wave in front of someone of means, this being before the days of AC. I am so mesmerized by this image, that I can feel the gentle breeze, bringing a smile of true contentment in my heart.
Now, that. . . is some serious tangling!
Rick and Maria add . . .
It's almost party time!
Alfie and Bijou are still getting ready for the big show while the tumbling Santas impatiently wait and, well, tumble!
We don't mind that they take their time, after all, it's theirs to take. And when they do go out, they always look so fine! And that reflects well on us all.
Have fun everyone and enjoy your wonderful time!
Welcome to the Project Pack No. 12 and the fifth day of the 12 Days of Zentangle!
It goes without saying that 2020 will go down in history as remarkable year. This year we all experienced the unexpected, the unknown and the uncertain. There were challenges that required our patience and strength in order for us to contribute to what the world needed.
In our Zentangle practice we encourage you to embrace the unexpected, the unknown and the uncertain as a part of your creative process. We encourage you to look for opportunities and to shift your perspective.
As we bring a close to a pivotal year in history, Project Pack No. 12 will offer us a magical time of rebirth, restoration, and awakening. We are excited to begin this year’s 12 Days of Zentangle, that we are calling the 2020 Zentangle Renaissance.
