Joey challenged us this week with another circle string and the tangle "Gnarly". I had to practice this one quite a bit, until I finally found a way that worked for me. Of course, the phone rang, and when I came back to start my tile, I had forgotten "my way"!! (I sometimes have the attention span of a gnat.) What was I saying? Oh, yes. I did my tile all the same, thinking that it might come back to me. I don't think it ever did. Molygon kept taking over my hand muscles, as I forgot to make bass clefs instead of bananas. All the same, it helped to Zen me out. As if I needed it, after all that delicious Cuban food I had for lunch with my newly retired colleague, who is Cuban, and his wife, who recommended this new place. Well, it's not new, but it was for me and.....

Thanks for a fun challenge, Joey!


  1. This is lovely. I love the black side / white side!

  2. Oh yes. This is absolutely stunning!!!! I LOVE it!
    When I saw this challenge on monday I thought : no, I can not imagine to draw Gnarly but when I see your tile I am motivated now to try it, anyway!

  3. This looks great framed in black. I was the same, I had to work out my own way of drawing Gnarly

  4. Gorgeous, I love the elegant black and white style.
