I had a request to share some of my older work both there and here, so I'm going to blog about some of it and share it with you and also post it over there so people can see. As my friend (and gifted artist) Cherryl Moote says, "Don't compare your chapter 1 to someone else's chapter 20."
|This is the first piece I ever put together all on my own|
It's been quite the journey!
|I still don't like diamonds. I struggle with them. I find that I avoid patterns that contain them actually.|
|This is one of my "nemesis" tangles. I think because I had such a hard time with Amler, and never really was happy with the results I achieved. This one left me thinking "Can I do this?"|
|So, I actually GAVE UP on cubine here, I was like.. yeah... NOPE. That was the ONLY paradox I was successful at for the first 6 months and my purk is kinda.... lacking. But, this was the tile that made me realize I was hooked.|
|I loved Betweed instantly. LOVED it. Had no idea where I'd ever use it other than Halloween, yet I find it's a mac and cheese tangle for me and I use it all the time!|
In the meantime, some recent work.
They're posted with their flaws and their uniqueness and the parts I love and the parts I can't "unsee" no matter how hard I try... but they are very straightforward in showing how much I've grown in my skills.
People ask how to improve. :) It's all practice and love and zen.
Deep breath, pick up the pen.
