on not stopping
since i broke my wrist and can't really type, i assumed there would be no blogging either. but i can't stop drawing. here's my 1-handed version of joey challenge #174.
following that is a 10-minute sketch of the incredibly bulky cast and sling i'm wearing.
my previous post has all the tiles i've been sneaking in 1-handed since the break.
joey challenge 174. the main tangle is "asian fans" and the rest is my embellishments on the lovely be-ribboned string created by suzanne ng. this was a "finish my tile" challenge and if you look at her original, it's lovely all by itself. i used a rainbow lead pencil and graphite for color and shading.

Wow, thank you both!

LMAO, nothing is going to stop you from Tangling! Love the drawing of your cast and the watch🤗

thanks, trudi. i'm so surprised to still be tangling!
ONE-handed????!!!! You must be kidding me. I need both just to draw a simple line. That brings to light who is the real artist and who is the would-like-to-be artist cum stay at home single dog owner. Your Asian Fans is absolutely gorgeous and the whole tile with the subtle colors is marvelous. I am so glad you took the time and energy despite the draw-back to participate on my challenge.

wow, susie, thank you so much, your original string with the asian fans was so beautiful i just had to use it. thamk you for the inspiration! i got a laugh out of your cast comment. it's a hot mess--bulky and all tangled with ace bandages going every which way. fortunately it's temporary.

Beautifully executed and remarkable that you did this with your wrist injury;-)
