Enough Already

If it must be said, circles are kind of my thing.  I just can't get away from them!  Simple, lively colored, organic, they are perfect in everyway.  It doesn't matter what medium I am working in, circles are worked into almost every piece I make.  I wanted to share this piece of 8x11 paper I worked on about a 1 1/2 years ago.   I went through my scrap magazines and found images that i though would work on this scale and holepunched each one, then glued down, repeat.  Off and on, of course.  I think it may have been therapeutic.

I finally finished it and haven't done anything with it so far.  Actually, I have been photoing it and altering the photos on my computer.  It has some pretty cool affects!

The circles may be regular hole-punched size but some graphics stand out more than others.  And when you skew the brightness or tint, you can get several different looks from one piece!

A different angle, then some doctoring and pinks and oranges arrive!  This could be inspiration for a painting!

Business cards, maybe?....

This is the entire piece of paper.  Any guesses on approximately how many circles there are?

Hey, just circling life this artist holiday....

  1. Very cool. business cards would be good. or how about the sides of your blog or banner of Etsy store for a change. Fabric swatch but how to print out...could you find 9x9 printable fabric?? Mainly I have found standard printer paper size. and it would use a lot ink! i know you'll find the perfect thing to do with it. It is so cool!
    have a good day,
