Diva Challenge #260: " Monotangle : Shattuck"

It has been a while since I have had time to participate in the Diva Challenge. I have missed it. I have not totally been away from it, just not participating. I have usually checked out what the challenge is and also looked at a few of the posts. Have not had much time to do anything. When I saw this week's challenge, really wanted to participate as Shattuck is one of my "go to"tangles. I have always liked it. I have used it a lot. I am not sure exactly what the attraction is at is not a particularly difficult tangle. It is one that I find easy to get into that relaxation zone. I think it is the repetition of the same stroke that helps accomplish this.  I have used it in all kinds of ways. I have used it as a border, as fill, as part of other tangles....  This week's challenge is also a monotangle. If you look at my tile, you can see that maybe this is not a true monotangle as I did include a little Zander. I was not thinking about it and just started doing it as it seemed to fit. It is pretty minimal and I stopped when I realized that this did not fit with it being a monotangle. I still like the result. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

I used a 2B pencil for the shading.

Here are only a few other examples of when I have used this tangle.

If you  have not all ready done so, I would encourage you to go to I am the Diva and look at the different pieces of art that others have posted. I am hoping to look at as many as I can. I hope I will be able to post a few comments as well.

Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle !!
