Architecture of Change

We had a lovely holiday on the 4th, grilling burgers on the patio, watching the fireworks display down the hill from us and sipping our Sangrias. Sadly my camera isn't really up to taking pictures of fireworks but this will give you an idea.

I had to take my car into the shop this week and while walking back to pick it up I had a chance to take a picture of this very interesting wall. I've admired it for years and this was my chance to get a good picture.

There are other elements to the left and right and much of it is blocked by the trees that have gotten large over the years but it is a really intriguing architectural design.

This week's Diva Challenge was to use the flag of your country as an inspiration for a tile. I decided to do a Mandala because I wanted to focus on an image of unity and a prayer for peace. Little did I know how much we would need this during a week of horrific violence.

Tangles Used: Miander, Capell, Diva Dance and Gra-vee


  1. Wonderful interpretation! And thanks for sharing the pic from the great wall!

  2. Dorita, I am so with you on the prayer for peace. I stayed up all night doing peace inspired art. I really like your country colors tile, especially the subtlety of the tangles in the red stripes. They're there, but subtle. It looks like red marble.

  3. I agree with Anja and Suzanne, very nice blogpost and an original interpretation of this challenge, I like that very much!

  4. Beautiful idea and wise words! Thank you for that!
