This tile is for DC334, this week for the Diva's Weekly Challenge.
These are a couple tiles I did using N'zeppel.   Sorry for the lack of chatty talk the last several weeks but have been having some sick days along with doctor's appointments and today, I had to visit with my Ophthalmologist for my yearly Diabetes checks at which time, of course, he dilated my eyes...so for about 6 hours I had to wear my sunglasses over the top of some plastic dark lenses they gave me to protect my eyes out in the world.  I came home and slept for 3 hours.  I couldn't drive with all that going on and my wife had to take me in for this test and with her MS, her responses aren't always the best, so it was a fun day.  Last Friday I had to go see Orthopedics people and the doctor there said I need an operation on my right knee to repair some torn ligaments, so on this coming Friday, I will go under the knife for that.  Don't ya just love older age watching your body go way ahead of your mind...my mind says I'm still young but my body says, hold on old man, you can't do things younger people do.

Anyway, here's my tiles for this week.  Enjoy my N'zeppel world and Zentangle N'zeppel with TranZending Z.


I have been doing a bit of drawing this past couple of weeks as I have discovered the use of Opus tiles and I find I like them much more than the little 3.5 inch tiles.  There is a lot more room to express my art and I like that.

Here I am again, midweek and posting again.  It's OK, I have more to show you that I have been working on:

I was working to improve my Bunzo presentation.

This is Drupe.

On Mosaic, my first comment on this was from Molly Hollibaugh saying it was "swirling fun".  It's one of her's...Molygon.

This one is a creation from Dolly Bolen CZT15 and is in honor of her husband who was a paratrooper in the Canadian Army.  She invited me (or rather challenged me) to take this one on to see how I would do it.  It was easy and fun to re-create it myself.  And I love helping to support Armed Forces personnel wherever they are.  I know what they go through in life of the Military since I am a 30 year veteran of the U.S. Navy.

Well, another week in paradise, so they tell me.  Another Guest Diva (Jane Riter) for the Diva Challenge #331 and we are drawing Petosky Stones from Michigan:

Here is my rendition of the assignment.  No tangles, just a drawing of a stone with eyes.

This is my response to guest Diva, Jeanette Clawson.  She showed us how to make a plate on 4 tiles.  I just did 1 tile and you can imagine the other three because I would just be making the exact same design to make the plate, (and I am late getting this 1 tile up anyway).

I made this tile using 4 different Fragments from the Primer;  T-6, D-4, J-6, and G-6 (these are in order from the outside ring inward to the center.


Looking for more of my work?  Just scroll down my blogs.  I have put up quite a few of the tiles I have been working on lately.

Noom Repus surround Betweed

Nymph with Zingers and Fescue

Framz with Noom Repus and Ahh.  Black ink with white charcoal to create the TranZending effect in the framz.

Hey there, everyone.  So, Marguerite and all in the Diva Challenge #329, here is my offerings for this week.  D-1 in various forms.  You be the judge.  Let me know what you all think.  Thank you, Marguerite for this fantastic idea on using the fragments to create a "tangle" out of or to fill a tile, anyway.  I think I will have to use this idea to make many more tiles from fragments from the Primer, Vol 1.


D-1 going different directions with Ginili

Here is D-1 on the Diagonal with two opposite sides going one way and the other opposite sides going the other way to form a neat Star.
