Solitude


It's Saturday here in Tasmania, the noises of the morning have just faded and our home is peaceful. When I am busy doing those everyday jobs I don't think about the background sounds but when everything stops and the washing machine finishes it's last spin, ahhh, silence and solitude. Thank you...now for a nice cup of tea and a seat in the garden.

  3. Your spirals always seem so perfect. Do you freehand them or do you have some super secret method to make the guide?

    1. Andrea, I draw the spiral string freehand, some times they turn out better than others, this one came out quite well. The string is a guide so I tweak it a bit to suit the tangles.

  4. Just gorgeous, Shelly. Beautiful, and so detailed. I love the touches of colour you have used, especially the olive & orange tones in the pods - do you use markers for colouring these bigger areas?

  5. Ahh, I just love your work... So delicate and flowing. It makes it look effortless (but I know that it is not!). Thanks for sharing it.

  6. It's always a pleasure to see a new Zia you made. This one is beautiful! Hope you have a lot of 'silence', I think it's so important to have that in your life.

  7. I am relatively new to tangling, only since February 2012, which happily a friend introduced to me, though I have been a teaching Calligrapher for over thirty years, but tangling and your beautiful ZIA designs draw me further and further into tangling. So far I have only been tangling on tiles, but one day hope to spread my wings and do a ZIA of my own. Thank you for sharing your creativity......you must be a "special soul" methinks.
    I live in Townsville, opposite end of Australia to where you are !
