Tangle challenges and other stuff

This week in my house we are making slow progress with the bathroom renovation. Lots of action last week but nothing so far this week. The floor tiles are down and then  ...... we wait.

I've hit the super busy part of term, with marking and reports. Some of my students have produced brilliant work while too many have not submitted their current assignment. It's soooo frustrating when students don't hand in work. They are capable if they just put a bit of effort in.

BoyBoy is part way through a 3 day workshop at the Australian National University's School of Art. This workshop is for prospective students to come and try out all the facilities. BoyBoy is loving it. This is where he hopes to study next year with the aim of becoming a sculptor. 

Diva #318 - Diptych

I haven't seen the Kitchen Table Tangle for this one so I'm relying on what the Diva and other Tanglers have done to help me understand the challenge.

I made 3 tiles, with the final one being the only one I like. If anyone can identify the Tangle I used in the hinge for my 3rd tile, I'd much appreciate it. Mariet used it on a ZIA that she showed on her blog this week.

Here are my tiles.

Other drawing

Not much time or energy for drawing at the moment. I will catch up with the Made by Joey challenges soon. I've come too far to stop now.

Here is an Opus tile that I've been working on. It's based on a image of the Winter Solstice that I've seen variations of online. Hopefully I'll finish it over the next week or so. So far it includes Poke Leaf, Gnarly and Hollibaugh.

This week's Kitty Pic

This is Arthur sleeping under the covers of the bed in the study/ art studio. It's his favourite place on winter evenings, even when I'm not in here drawing or working. 

Have a great week and thanks for dropping by.

These are all lovely! I'm especially drawn to the third diptych. I love the movement of Verve, I think that's the name. Your zendala is fantastic!

Jean Chaney said...

Yes, Verve it is. I love that tangle. It's one of my favorites. Beautiful pieces, and Arthur looks so comfy!

All your tiles are so beautiful! I love the first and last ones. I used Verve as my hinge as well. I love your Opus tile! Looking forward to seeing it finished! I just want to cuddle up with Authur! He looks so comphy and warm! :)

All three are lovely, but the last one is my favorite. Well, to be honest it's not .... Arthur is.

Great tiles. I especially love the Soltice one. Can't wait to see it finished. Hope Boyboy enjoyed his time at ANU. It's got a great arts faculty.

That Opus tile is glorious! I have seen a few participants in the Diva's Challenge including a cat picture and I may do that too! Fun idea and great Zentangles!
