Tangling with My Left Hand…

This week’s challenge is to create a tile using your non-dominant hand.

I was tempted to skip this challenge because I have some issues with the nerves in my left arm and hand. I have trouble doing most things with my left hand, so drawing with it wasn’t high on my list of fun things to do. But then I realized that I could draw something with it.

I drew this tile in my sketch book instead of on a tile, which is why there is no border around the picture. I usually scan my tile under a piece of black paper so I can crop a border. I traced a tile using my right hand, but everything else is with my left hand.  I followed Laura’s suggestion to use a Micron 08 to draw.

It is interesting to my eye and while not as precise as it would be if I used my right hand, it hold a certain naive, child-like charm to me.

So, here’s my tile for this week:

Tangles: Bales, Emingle, Printemps

Be sure to check out Laura’s blog to see how others have responded to this week’s challenge.  I hope that you find these tiles as inspiring and educational as I do.  I always learn something from those who post their tiles.  Thank you to all of you.  🙂

And thank you to all who viewed my new book, Tips for Tangling, on Amazon. com  🙂  and a huge THANK YOU to those who purchased a copy.

Until next time,
Sending smiles,
