I just love this wonderful tangle, created by CZT Cheryl Cianci of Connecticut. Cheryl was the artist I referenced in my blog yesterday, and with her permission, I'm posting my first attempt at her tangle named Emanon (read that backwards and you'll discover it says "no name"). She is going to share it at TanglePatterns.com in a while so you will be able to see the step-outs there, but it's not there as of right now. She has another really wonderful tangle to add as well...don't you love surprises...
This constituted two "firsts" for me, one being my first try at this tangle (you can see some stray lines as I tried to master it on the left) and the second being the first time I've ever used colored pencil all over the entire tile.
It was fun to do it as a monotangle too.
The blending leaves quite a bit to be desired (with apologies to my two colored pencil teachers so far, Kate Lamontaigne and Cheryl Cianci) but I assume that I will improve over time. And for some reason, I like the dramatic color changes.
As usual the photography on this is pretty terrible. The countdown has begun as to when I get my new camera (as part of a new phone). Probably in about a month.
One thing's for sure: I'm crazy about Emanon and plan to use it a lot more. Big happy thanks to Cheryl!

No immediate group classes scheduled (I'm always open to hearing about a good venue in Western Massachusetts. I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.
