"Do you see them?" she asked.
I marvelled at her tangleations of hollibaugh. She had transformed her hollibaugh "boards" into striped ribbons that wrapped around her strings. I went on and on about how woven (and tangled) it looked even though everything was, in Zentangle fashion, "drawn behind."
"Do you see the hearts?" she asked.
Wow! What had been invisible before was now obvious. I had been so entranced by Maria's delicious tangling of the negative space between the hearts that I totally missed their underlying structure. And these were hearts that I missed.
Is it that easy to become so entranced in my day-to-day beautiful and demanding intricacies that I can miss the very thing that holds us all together?
"Wow . . . hearts!" I said.
This Zentangle was created for Laura Harms' eighth weekly challenge. Maria combined heart strings with the simplicity of a single tangle hollibaugh and breath . . . always breath.Click image for a larger view.
