With many apologies to Joyce Kilmer, I begin with this week's inchie challenge:
And move swiftly to the TwobyTwo.
Not my most inspired, but it's my house, if you could see the house for all the yews and mulberry trees. It's banana yellow (ugh) with brown asphalt shingles (hmm...ugh). The stem walls and the front walk are natural slate in beautiful shades of aqua, green, tan and brown. The original owner was a stonemason and his artistry is visible on this side, the front side, of the house. It's firmly attached to the forty year-old double-wide mobile home that we're slowly renovating.
That was a toughie. Next week's is decidedly easier, at least we think it is. Please consider a crack at "Wood" for the upcoming TwobyTwo and spread the word to like-minded artists. There's even a Zentangle angle for tangly people everywhere!
I finish up by posting this week's stab at the Diva challenge. The object was to create a spring string and work it. Earth Day is coming up and the Diva's kids call Mother Earth "Amanda." I had a concept in mind of a ribbon of Earth unraveling and Zentangle is by definition non-objective, so there was some resistance in the force.
Regardless, I give you, "The Care and Feeding of Amanda:"
That's what I have to offer thus far this week. It has just been one thing after another.
In better news, my daughter and her beau are once-again an item. Oh, the drama! I guess those potholders really worked. I had a lot of positive feedback on those and gladly share the company information here. Love those guys (and girls!)
Thank you for visiting and your encouragement. Have a brilliant day!
