|Circle # 4|
acrylic on canvas
6 ft x 5 ft
Today I finished my fourth circle painting started in September. This series was inspired by a yoga class I took last November while at the Vermont Studio Center. In this class we performed our yoga practice within the circle of a large, beautifully made hoop - I think it was cedar as it smelled wonderful.
Based on that class I was inspired to make these paintings due to the healing benefits of "being" in a circle. Each day that I am in the studio I make a circle and alternate the colors of black and white acrylic. It has become a studio ritual. Tomorrow I hope to post more images of the progression on this painting.
As my circles take on a life of their they become a journey.
