It's a lovely week to be thankful, especially for the upcoming holiday!
This week's challenge is a duotangle:
Today we had to use the tricky tangles "Pea-nuckle" and "Well," neither of which I am particularly familiar or confident in. I had never tried "pea-nuckle" before and it was a tricky little tangle to incorporate. I admit that I should have let it shine a bit more in this tile but I was cautious while using it. In order to hide the parts of the "s" that I didn't use, I made them into circles. As for "well," I had fun with it today. I tried three different variations and it didn't trip me up like it did when it was first introduced (part of the reason I haven't used it since). Overall, this was a great challenge to test some patterns I am not confident in and I think the effect wasn't too bad overall.
For more news on my art life:
I just finished the design of a new project!
This is a lithograph on an aluminium plate, drawn with ink using a fountain pen. The fountain pen gave me SO MUCH grief but I pulled through in the end. Unfortunately the glare off the plate makes it difficult to see all the detail but I will be printing this design on paper very soon and can't wait to see how it turns out!
Thank you to everyone for the kind, well-wishes for my art show! It was such a success and I received "honorable mention" for my 8 ft. piece. Here are a few pics:
I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving!
