A Fruitful Exercise

Barbara Allen, a CZT from California, posted a challenge on deconstructing a particular pattern given to her by one of her students. As we all know, finding a pattern that can easily be drawn is not always as easy as it looks like it will be. When Barbara poked a bunch of Zentangle teachers about a possible solution, she got quite a few suggestions. Even though what I came up with doesn't look exactly like the pattern she was looking for, it was still a fun exercise, and one that was fruitful for me...
   Even though when I look at a pineapple, I don't really see this pattern, the pattern reminds me of a pineapple. I am still playing with developing some simple steps to this tangle, and when I have it down, I will post them.
   Thanks Barbara, and all the energetic participants who generously offered the back and forth of creative cross pollination!

  1. I like this one. I think the one on the right looks sorta like a cactus. What do you think?

  2. Maybe that's more like it. Yes, a cactus. Thanks! I'm still thinking of a name. That might help.
