Tripoli Travels

A rainy day perfect for time spent with tripoli which is one of those tangles that just travels and merges in so many ways just like a mystery bus tour.
In all these tiles I started with tripoli first then without a plan, no map, just waited patiently to see which tangle came onto view next!


Around the round-about with keeko and squill


Construction on the way, tripoli held up with strutz


From the density of the city out onto the freeway without a word spoken



Lost in the woods.......
will I find my way out by the light of the noom?

Framed

Back in September I finished a 4 piece Opus tile mosaic for Joshua and Nan's new home. You can see it here close up.  Rod from Scottsdale Art Gallery CafĂ© framed it for us and Paul hung it in their living room.

While tangling it I was thinking of a winding path but after it was framed and I stood back, a large M stood out, Nan is from Myanmar so I was happily surprised. I had the idea of their life path of ups, downs, filled with lots of little gems, I wanted smooth flowing, many tangles to make life interesting but be able to stand back and see the big picture with a smile.

As I like to say 'Life is full of surprises just like a Zentangle'!
