Black and White Challenge

Wow, this week's Diva Challenge was to use equal parts black and white in a piece. I will admit to having snuck a look at many before I ever embarked upon my own interpretation. I really loved the positive/negative ones I saw, but that is not the way I went with it. I just kept seeing all those tangles that rae nearly equal parts black and white like Bunzo to name the first that popped into my head. So I went that direction with it. I ended up using one that is not necessarily half and half normally, a version of Diva Dance, but I liked the way it came out. Given the black/white nature of the challenge I chose not to shade at all.

Then I thought I should finish up the second entry for last week's Zendalla challenge. It was finished except for shading., so I finished that up and will include it here. It is VERY different than the first entry, even though they use the same zendalla template. That is why I love doing more than one, to see how they differ when they 'grow up'.

Have a great week!


  1. Yes, that is always so wonderful, the difference in what we make.
    I love them both and cannot pick a favorite. You did very well with this challenge.

  2. Both are beautifully done - love the simplicity and contrast in the first, but your Zendala is WOW! Fabulous shading!

  3. Less is more, that goes for both entries! I think you did well, not to shade the first. The zendala is spectacular with the white part with just a little shade!

  4. Love both your pieces. The zendala is fantastic!

  5. Oh, this took my breath away! I love this!! I like the other one too, but this one, wow!
