Yet ANOTHER Doodle

This one turned out quite different from what I intended.  I had wanted to do one with mostly straight lines, not too much curving or circles.  Then I was going to call it Angles, anticipating it might have a lot of geometrical angles.

But it had a mind of its own.

Once I put in the central triangle and drew the lines in it, I was off in a whole different direction.  The straight line design below the triangle was something I wanted but didn't know what to do with.  Then the border on the right hand side crossing the line below the triangle gave me a look I liked and wanted as well as a right angle. Then I found a curving triangle above the original triangle, one side with V shapes and its opposite with dots. Finally, I definitely wanted the rope, even though it had curves. I just liked it. It's quite amazing where creativity will take you.

Eventually it all came together with the triangle emerging in my mind as a Gemstone, although my husband says it's more like a stained glass window. But too late, I had already decided on Gemstone as the title.

Gemstone is a good title, and it reminds me of a stained glass window in a church.

I think your colourful 'tangles are all gems. Your use of bright colours really make these special and I think you've found your artistic 'voice' in creating them. Congrats on another stunner!

This is beautiful, especially the stained glass window!

It certainly does look like stained glass, very colourful and complex. It aeems to have a very nice mind of its own.

I would say a very stained glass window in a very contempory church. Or should I say modern. I like it!
