PIA - a new tangle

Late this past summer I taught some Zentangle classes at the 2012 Paint in Alberta convention. This interesting and simple pattern was the wallpaper in one of the rooms.

 Here's how to draw Pia.
You can vary Pia by changing where (and if) you fill with black or with thin stripes. Here are some possible variations and a tile (using a two-pencil string) with some of them.
Tangles: Beadlines, Knase, Pia

BTW: It's getting harder and harder to keep track of tangles and names. If this pattern has been presented elsewhere, or if the name has been used earlier, please let me know!
