Circles have an interesting history for me, as I found out early in school that I was really quite good at drawing almost perfect circles with no aids, such as a compass. Good for me too, since I can’t draw a straight line to save my life! This was also one of Picasso’s favorite assignments for new artists, to draw a perfect circle. I even did a little research, and it seems there is a World Championship for free-handing circles. They fascinate me as they would most observers of the world, especially with the human inclination to make things straight, in a line, and with right angles, I almost crave the circle, the curve, the non-linear. Even my daughter had a hard time resisting the urge to interact while I worked to ~

*This project was a great chance to use up all that cardstock I’ve holding onto. Hated the patterns and designs, but I didn’t want to throw it away. The silver circles were made using Artist Loft brand craft paint and some free stickers from promotional junk mail.
