Weekly Challenge #41: DuoTangle v. II "Jonqal/Opus"

Sometimes the weekly challenges come easily, sometimes I get so bogged down in the trying that I never get anything done.  I appreciate the challenges, though.  It seems that I usually remember them at a time when I need to think something through.  Or a time when I am feeling particularly vulnerable (and struggling with accepting the vulnerability wholeheartedly).  This is one of those days - inexplicably out of sorts...feeling like I have done (or not done as the case may be) something wrong...maybe just something thoughtless.  I don't know why except I'm exhausted and I haven't been sleeping.  But lo! and behold... a challenge comes along to at least let me clear my head even if I have nothing figured out.  For once I have no opinion about my tile... I neither love nor dislike it.  I offer it as it is unconditionally.  Maybe in the letting go I'll figure out what is bother me.

Jonqal and Opus
Happy tangling.

Very nice and dimensional. I can relate to your post. I feel that way sometimes too.

Very striking patterns. I have not been creating tangles for very long but find it is a wonderful release for my feelings. Perhaps thats why it takes me so many sketches to get an idea that I like before I get lost in a pattern that I am happy with.

Sometimes the hardest part is getting started - once started, the lines often just draw themselves. Your design is so cool, all the softness in the middle protected by the strong outer lines. Is it trying to tell you something? :)

I often find that tangling calms me down, helps me focus, and lets me live with ambiguity. Hope you're feeling better.

Beautiful, dear! Opus breaking through.

I've felt like that all week. Trying to fight through.
