" Assunta" - Weekly Challenge #36

"The challenge this week is to use the new tangle called Assunta that appeared in the latest Zentangle newsletter.  It's a close relative to the tangle cadent, and it's pretty fun.  You can see the instructions here - and your challenge is to delve in and try it out.  There are many things you can do with this tangle, lots of variations or tanglations are possible!"

Those are the instructions from Laura Harms, CZT, our lovely and talented Diva who presents us with our Zentangle®  'homework' (it's actually not home-work.... it's home-play!) via weekly challenges.
In the beginning, I had a bit of a struggle with Assunta.  Now understand, she's not a fallacious old girl, just somewhat plane to understand.  Her curves meet her points;  her points meet her points; and her curves meet her curves.  This girl has it all!!!!!

I have heard stories about her antics in the old country... where she is known as Tessa.  A bit of a puzzle, if you ask me.  She was born in the town of Polygon, daughter of self-replicating and recursion(al) parents.  Her brothers, Fractal and Symmetric, are both quadrilateral professors at the University of Congruence.

Tessa has family in Whitinsville.  Creative innovators, they hang out in a wonderful mode of rotational symmetry, inspiring humans with their talent, spirit and charm.  And so...... was born Assunta.
