|Diva's Challenge #118: "Kukes"|
- Ontario, Canada
- Life is working full time, being married for 35 years, being mom to a grown daughter, 2 15 yr old cats and a 7 year old Diva of a Boston Terrier. Becoming involved in the art community has changed my life, since I began to focus on Zentangle,in August of 2012. Since then, I've gained the courage to explore other kinds of art lately. I've added water soluble media, and art journalling to the mix. The most wonderful surprise in all of this , has been finding such a warm and wonderful community built around these art forms. Without exception those I have encountered are encouraging, friendly, generous of spirit, and great fun! Thank you, everyone, for the warm welcome. I hope you will enjoy this blog as much as I enjoy yours.

Playing with "Kukes" Diva's Challenge 118 UMT
After way too long, I finally decided I just had to get back to the Diva's Challenge. Time has just not permitted lately, and I have missed the challenges, and all of you, so very much. For those of you unfamiliar with The Diva's Challenge, it is a non-competitive challenge based on a different theme each week. A slideshow is made showing every entry when all is done. You can find this week's challenge HERE .
I fell in love with "Kukes" on sight. I love botanicals, and I could see so much potential. I also love anything "orb" shaped. The story of "Kukes" and the step-outs to help you learn to draw it are HERE . This is Katy Abbott's first published original tangle, and I hope there will be many more.
Although I'm drawing it far from perfectly, it's fun to draw, and I love how it looks when it's done.
I stuck with black, and graphite, this time, but I see so much potential for color with this tangle. I was envisioning this piece in Christmas colors.
I feel it ended up too busy and a littlle visually confusing, but I didn't compose it. It built itself. So I suppose it's precisely its very best self.
Here is my entry for Diva's Challenge #118: "Kukes".
I can hardly wait to get around and see what everyone has done with this tangle. I always enjoy seeing your work, and I love it when you leave me comments. I look forward to every single one.
Til next time, tangle happy!
