I have always been fascinated by circles. It‘s the primordial shape with which all starts. When children are drawing a circle, they soon start to draw everything: the sun, the moon, people, animals, flowers….
Circles are soothing, they are protecting. Sitting in a circle is the most simple and powerful way to celebrate being a part of it all; to root into the earth and to connect with heaven.
Just recently I had the idea of starting a whole journal only with collage art circles. All more or less the same size.
So here are some pages from my „Book of circles“.
Cutting out circles has another side effect: it gaves you a good detail look for patterns, colours and small things in greater pictures. This is quite important, when you are a collage/journal artist.
