Zenduo #14

"Don’t seek, don’t search, don’t ask, don’t knock, don’t demand – relax."     Osho

I'm back with another Zenduo, this one #14. I feel like I should be much further along in my series by now, but there are so many other things to do that it's going slowly. That's okay, there's no pressure to zip through them (that wouldn't be zen!)

I decided to draw this one on a pre-strung tile from Here's what it looked like before I did anything.

The two tangles next on my list were Bowties from Lori Howe and Brella by Bunny Wright. Here's what I came up with. In the three sections that I used Brella, I tried to turn them in different directions. That didn't go so well, but I do like the contrast in this tile.

Although I try to incorporate more white space into my tiles than I used to, that space in the center just didn't feel right to me, so I decided to add color. I randomly chose red/orange and blended pastel pencils in the space. After doing that I felt like it looked like the flame on a candle, so that was the deciding factor in which direction the tile went.

Hope to be back soon with another Zenduo, or perhaps another project I'm working on. Happy tangling!
