New tangle Zenith Challenge #233 & Meditation #232 No 3.

Welcome back Laura from your summer break with your family.  Some great guest posts have kept me busy over the last few weeks although I have not done as many tangley things as I would have liked.

We went to a live screening at our local cinema of Othello from The Royal Shakespeare Company live on stage from Stratford-on-Avon.  What a brilliant way to see such an excellent production 10 minutes from home rather than a few hours drive, overnight stay and the expense!  I know Live from the Met has been going for a long time but hubby is not wild about opera.  So more plays to come and we've also booked quite a few concerts for the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra this winter. 

Zenith first- after practicing I came up with this.  The metallic colours haven't shown up too well but the tangle has plenty of possibilities.



The meditation (No 3) was lovley - I actually did it almost straight away but only just now got round to posting it.  Athletics World Championships from Beijing were on which I was glued to!  Having coached athletics for so many years I am still a big fan. (We also went to the Anniversary Games at the Olympic Park in July).   Some great performances from athletes of all nations  and our guys & gals did OK too!  Awesome Bolt & Farah at both ends of the spectrum of distances.

Will go and do the others in a quiet moment.  Quite a surprise to see the result.


Thanks for passing by!  Your comments are always appreciated.

I need to catch up now on loads of blogs.  There are so many in my list I haven't looked at for a while.

  4. I like the variations on the Zenith and your use of colour too.It's amazing how keeping to a limited palette can be so effective.

    1. Thanks Margaret. Over many years my tutor in our art class encouraged us to stick to a limited palette. Looks like I must have listened!! Sometimes though I can go overboard with colour. For various reasons I haven't done much painting though recently.

  7. Wow, your tile is so beautiful! When I first met my husband (in 2001) he lived in Stradford-upon-Avon in a small cottage in Old Town, near by Shakespeare theater. So, you bring back some memories, thanks :-)

    1. I'm so pleased that brought back fond memories. I haven't been to Stratford since 1969! That' a bit scary
