the reason for the season

When I first saw the tangle pattern 'Mooka' demonstrated I was struck by the basic simplicity, the continuity of the line, and how it flowed together. It also struck me that it looked a little like a nativity scene, so I wanted to wish you all holiday greetings by playing up that idea. My 'Mooka' has three heads with halos, to represent Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus. I only tangled the halos with a metallic gold gelli roll pen and added some highlights and shadows to keep the basic theme as simple as possible. (I started with a blue round cut from posterboard.)

May you all enjoy a blessed and very happy holiday.
