Paradox

Paradox: a tangle that is full of surprises, and for all of its straight lines, can create quite a dimensional little stir. It's one of my favorites on those days when a straight line with black ink is just what the doctor ordered. This one was started a month or so ago. It sat in my pile of tiles on my desk in the form of scrawny little lines all connected. Not much form or life until tonight, it seemed like a lot of fun to do some coloring in. With a Micron .08, I began coloring in the slivers around the edge to frame it, and ended up liking the middle twists unfilled. It's also great fun to shade this tangle.

I love a paradox in all its forms.

  1. Carol, this is a fabulous tile! I love paradox. I don't use it enough, though. I think you've inspired me to give it a try.

  2. Lovely paradox - a personal favorite as well. I've not filled one in yet - this may be the inspiration I need. Thanks
