Curvus Exhuberantus

My love of curved lines is obvious in my work, be it nudes, calligraphy, or Zentangle. Even my straight lines are somewhat curvy due to giving up rulers for Lent (and permanently misplacing them). I feel it to be a wonderful complement to Rick's tendency to do things straight, true and plumb . . . in a-line-ment. I'm glad our porch floor isn't curvy.

Life is good and wonderfully balanced.

Expanding on our previous Wm Morris post, here's my contribution to CZT Laura Harms' Challenge #15: "Love Your Curves, Baby."

Beautiful, Maria! Gotta get me one of those Gelly Roll pens!

Genevieve said...

That's a lovely collection of curviness.

Beautiful as always! Can I ask how you did the outer section? Did you use a liquid like ink to paint out that section and then go in white gel pen or ink? I love the way it changes over.

Sarah, Look at our last blog before this one Wm Morris....It describes the process..... and on this tile I used a Graphic 1 pigma pen to fill in the black before using the Gelly Roll wite pen on it. such fun.....Maria

Lovely, as always! Thank you for posting your process for the white on black, by the way. I've been looking for something like the white gelly roll pen for a while, and so has my mom. :D

Love the transition from black-on-white to white-on-black; this really teems with energy!

Love the black border background vs the light in the center. It makes for a beautiful and unique tangle!

Oh Maria, this is beautiful! I love the black on white with the white on black. Very nice. I guess that I'm going to have to try that as well.
