I have been painting circles because I love circles. Love the serendipity of them. I shared a story on my circle painting journey previously, but if you have missed it and now have a moment, go check it out HERE.
Well, I do love polka dots, spheres, and most any roundish pattern I find (or make), as you might know. And painted circles can be done in a couple of thousand different ways. There is no end to a circle, and I don’t imagine there is any end to the many ways you can vary them. Think about this simple pattern, how it could be varied ad infinitum (forevermore). You can vary this particular pattern in size and color combinations, right? Or you could make it neater, or even messier. You could fill a wall with circles, or a little post-it-note. Thinking about it makes me want to paint all day, every day. Painted circles ad infinitum.
This is a new series I'm currently working on, exploring new techniques and styles in circle art. I have been experimenting a lot with abstract painting. I love painting abstracts in so many ways, and each time I dive in I learn new stuff. New stuff about myself, new stuff about color combinations I enjoy, new stuff about art. I want to share it here, and will try to take more photos of these paintings soon. I have been painting, but not photographing the paintings much. My camera has been resting a lot this year. Too much really due to the current pandemic situation, I can’t travel overseas for the time being. It's actually a rare opportunity to be able to work from home and spend more time at home nowadays to do more things that i enjoy doing, be it painting, journalling, reading, blogging etc.
As such, I've named all of the paintings in this new series that correlate to the term "VITALITY", which has a few definitions such as: the state of being strong and active, the power of enduring and the capability to live and develop. I hope all of you are keeping well at home during this pandemic period, be safe and continue to be connected in the virtual world.
