It will be fun to see what other artists offer on the topic of "circles". My first thought went to the labyrinth as a sacred circle. The 3 shown here are 3 of the most common patterns shaped for walking one.
Remember now…a maze is a puzzle you have to solve. A labyrinth is a journey to the center and back…always knowing where you are going and giving you time for solving problems and meditating along the way. You are never lost in a labyrinth and you always return the same way you came…but often a different person.
Thus the name of my blog was born…a meditative journey toward some center…paying attention all the way and back. The circle background was prepared on a gesso'd page with acrylic paint using a foam brayer and a stencil (by StencilGirl stencils). After dry I adhered the small samples of labyrinths with gel medium and did the writing with an "identi-pen" black ink.
You will note that I give a URL link to go on a "virtual labyrinth" at the end of the page.
