This week was a tangly week! For one thing, we had Labor Day on Monday, which threw the whole week into a tangle (it feels like it should be Saturday when it's actually Friday!). For another thing I've tangled nearly every day this week - and only completed one tile!
I started on Tuesday working on the Diva's Zentangle Challenge. You can see the tile below beginning to form in my post from Wednesday. On Wednesday I tangled a bit at work as a study break. Thursday night I took my Zentangle kit with me to my haircut and tangled while I was waiting. Finally, I finished the shading on the tile today, just in time to post it. It's definitely a here, there, and everywhere tile!
I see a spot where I forgot to shade a section - do you see it?

Two of my college classes discuss rhythm in art, in terms such as "staccato" and "legato", which are typically reserved to describe music. Being a musician in addition to an artist, I am intrigued by this intermingling lingo. Staccato means detached, choppy, abrupt. Legato means tied together, smooth, and connected. It's challenging to nail down which one this, or any, Zentangle is. You could say this one is staccato due to the broken up disconnection of pattern. Yet you could also say it is legato due to the flowing lines that all of the patterns follow. Perhaps the definition changes based on the direction from which you view the tangle.
As I depressed the shutter button of my camera to take the first picture in this post, the tile fell and produced this awesome Zentangle in motion:
