Tuesday's Tangle

I can honestly say I don't know which part of this weekly challenge was more difficult for me. Actually drawing the zentangle/zendoodle entirely with my non-dominant  left hand  (only created to hold my wedding band and keep me from looking funny) or posting the result here for all to see. Hmmm, that is a tough one. I chatted with my favorite artist, and she even agreed. It would be really hard to do mostly because of being a perfectionist. That part was really hard to over come. I had no idea it was so deeply ingrained in my psyche. I told my son about this challenge and he took great pleasure in explaining that if is wasn't difficult, it wouldn't be a challenge.
So I am going to rise to the challenge. I have drawn  and colored entirely with my left hand and the only thing left to do is to close my eyes and post it before my brain figures out what I am doing and brings my right  hand to a screeching halt.
Challenge # 13" Non-dominatrix"

For a real treat if you have some time, check out Laura Harm's blog and see what so many very talented artists have created this week using only their "non-dominant " hands. She puts together a weekly slide show of everyone's entries too. 
So, if I am drawing with my left hand, does that mean I am in my "right mind"?

Well there.....these are super nice. We all know that it is hard to let go of control.....but did you notice that there is a beauty to those less than straight lines. It gives a beautiful character to the pieces. Well done!

Nice job on this challenge. It was difficult enough for me to do one simple tangle and you went for two with so much detail.

Very nice - and you even did two!

Great work. I can't believe you did TWO! I was uber-happy when ONE was over!

Hey,
thanks for stopping by at my blog.
I saw you made a peacock last week with the blue challenge and I did a tangle called 'peacock' this week :)
I really like these. I would have never been able to do the first one!

I noticed you make beautiful things too (in your etsy shop and the tangles). So maybe you would like to be one of my first participants in my 'linkparty'? You don't have to if you don't want to, but because it is one for beautiful things, you may like to. You can find more info here:

Liked the pictures of the dogs too btw :)

Well done. I too found it difficult to let go part of the control you have on the drawing. Glad you posted ,we all had to overcome that part of the challenge.

Smiling at the difficulty in posting a tangle done with your non dominant hand...do I ever understand that! How can this be good for us? And you did TWO tangles! Wow! ;-)

Great results. As I was doing my tangle for this challenge, I thought I should have been drinking a glass of wine. I wondered if it would have helped me.
