On October 19, 2011 I wrote a post about my friend Mike who is a chef and artist. He cooks at one of my favorite restaurants and the restaurant had an employee art show. This is one of Mike's paintings:
I commented on how much I liked the flower shapes and he showed me how he drew them. I used them in a few of my tiles and posted them that night and promised that "directions were coming soon". I don't think "soon" is almost 2 years in anyones mind, so see, I'm a blibber.
So ladies and gentlemen, I have finally gotten off my butt and I present you with the step out for Bault, a great little tangle named for my friend Mike. You can download a PDF here.
At first glance Bault may look like just another flower. The two things that make it unique however, are the shape of the petals and the ability to fill it so many ways.
The key to the petals is two draw one side inward and one side outward like I have illustrated:
Anything look familiar here?
I posted tiles with this tangle 20 months before I purchased this blog template so I know it's not where I drew my inspiration from. I just think it's funny how we fall in love with things without realizing we have been looking at them all along.
I hope you enjoy the tangle and I promise not
to keep you waiting for 2 years in the future!
