Hi, it's Alfie here again!
Welcome to day three of The Twelve Days of Zentangle, 2020.
Whenever I want to play with Bijou, I first check the big conch shell that Bijou fancies to be his fractal apartment.
"Come out of your shell, Bijou," I will call to Bijou when I want to play.
Sometimes when I get stuck in my shyness, Bijou will say the same to me, "Come out of your shell, Alfie!" It's good advice for all of us, from time to time.
Rick tangles today's tile. He finds great comfort in tangles that align themselves rhythmically. Curves that magically meet ever so sweetly, like smooth steps of practiced dancers. This artwork he presents to us today, has quite a few different meta-patterns, that come into focus each time you close your eyes, then open them for another look from another perspective.
The interweaving spinning marquis shapes are brilliant - like jeweled pinwheels, waiting for a breath of fresh air to spin them into yet another meta-pattern. Surely they must have had toys such as these during the Renaissance.
And, well . . . they must have looked like these, right? Rick used a new adaptation of the tangle well for this tile.
Welcome to the Project Pack No. 12 and the third 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.
Project Pack No. 12 materials available here.
