This is "I Am the Diva's" Challenge No. 42 . . . "Strength, Courage, Hope."
To me, this was a difficult one to illustrate without using language . . . which is how I like to do it . . . Zentangle-style.
I decided to focus on STRENGTH. I used a variation of the Zentangle tangle chainging.
This chain-like image represents strength . . . of family, friends and community. We depend on each other, whoever that may be.
I like the simplicity of the single chain and the gossamer background representing the fragility of the world we live in.
Love these challenges.
After Maria gave me these tiles to photograph, my morning web surfing took me to YouTube simulations of our galaxy moving through space and the intertwining spiral paths traced by the planets' movement. I noticed a beautiful symmetry between those patterns and what Maria created.
