Going in Circles

Going in Circles

There's so much going on lately at work and home that sometimes one's mood takes over a painting -- and last week, THIS happened -- and the title "Going in Circles" was really how I was feeling. Has that happened to you too? Your intent with a painting begins one way and ends up somewhere else ... a good lesson to think about. LOL

It's a busy week here - our landscape design presentation, registration, new classes beginning ... yep, still a lot of circling going on! LOL

But it's been raining for two days now, and it's been much appreciated ....

Hope your day is great!

Going in Circles is GORGEOUS Lin!
You took a negative feeling, and turned it into wonderful and beautiful artwork! I love this!

I always feel like I am going in circles too,but if it felt like this looks......I'd be happy about it! :0)

Gorgeous to the max! And I love my versions and am framing them both!!

This is also a good one for election day LOL.

I was reading Ann Baldwin's new book last night and I love it -- your painting reminds me of the colors in some of her collages. Bold and beautiful.

Hope your week works out well and you accomplish all you need to -- in a straight line instead of circles!!

Sometimes the painting just takes over. I like the circle paintings you've done. They are so interesting and colorful. Lovely job on this!!

We have rain today, so I'll have to do some indoor painting.
Have a great day!
