Diva Challenge:Hamadox

The Diva Challenge

This is part of a larger group of tangles, of course.
The the roundish one in the center is called "Hamadox"...the challenge tangle for this week.  VERY fun.  In here is also Bugzy, and Fe-Ba and Lily-eyes.  It is one of my 8.5 x 11 calendar pages.  Sometimes I work on them for months.  Sometime I finish them in days.  Just depends on the moods, the times, and the opportunity. 
I do question sometimes the "draw" of working on gridded paper like this and then hardly ever following the grid...but working all over it.  I think psychologically it is energizing to defy the grid.  
I've been thinking about that.  Sometimes I enjoy being "inside" the box and comfortable.  And sometimes I just need to draw all over in wide galloping tangles that defy all boundaries.  

Just like life, huh?


  1. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, I have just taken a peak around your blog and love your architecture paintings! The cards for your grandchildren are wonderful as well! You have many talents!

  2. Nice words you have written abough and I agree, sometimes I like to stay in the box and sometimes it is better to come out of the box...
    You show us a well drawn Hamadox, it is a lovely pattern with many possibilities to variate.

  3. Lovely work, and I like your thoughts on being in and outside of the box!

  4. I think it's a good thing: in or out the box, both when you feel like it. The page is beautiful.

  5. Nice selection of tangles. I'm not fond of the enforced areas of grids either. Good for you!

  6. Thanks for sharing your calendar! Terrific tangles!

  7. You're right, Ginny! JUST. LIKE. LIFE! It's fun to get a glimpse of your calendar page! It's a very fun selection of finely drawn tangles.
