I wanted to find out more so I found a few sites that explained the meaning of the circle in art and life . Here is one that is easy to understand and gave me some insight on why the circle is prominent in my art.
Circle & Self
Finding the Sacred Center
-Carl G. Jung et al., Man and His Symbols (New York: Doubleday & Company Inc, 1964), 240.
My completed painting aptly named " Silent Moon " as my eye is drawn first to the moon like orb and it sits as if watching over the confusion below... waiting. This painting has taken me months to complete because it seemed I needed to be in a certain frame of mind to work on it which really drove me crazy! I would sit for hours ( I seriously would ) and wait for it to speak to me and when it finally did I believe the result was worth the wait. I would love to know what you see or feel when you look at this painting, there is no wrong answer, so please feel free to comment xox
