Sometimes all I need to start drawing is to give myself a simple shape to work with, in this instance a circle, and then see what I can do with it. How many variations can stem from one idea? In how many different ways can I draw a circle?
The symbol of a circle has so many meanings; eternity, the cycle of life and death, continuity, vitality, spirituality. To me it also symbolizes the earth, the moon, a sense of feeling whole and complete. Circles are also soothing to look at, more gentle on the eye than harsh angles.
