abstracting rivers, or following a muse

red circle river on yellow

I like circles. I mean, as a shape, they are appealing and easy to make patterns and ideas with, but also they are geometrically simple; I can elaborate on the surface without obscuring the shape and idea of a circle. I like them enough that I made one a day for an entire year. And I’m not sick of them yet!  I am noticing that the smaller the circles get, the more sinuous I can make the river. It is either that or go large…

  1. I’m with you there … circles are fabulous and as the recipient of 2 of your circles, I can attest to your fun with them that year of the circle. They are still lovely and looked at often 😉
