Project 81

The soapbox series is complete! For the watercolor bits, I used ultramarine, quinacridone gold, and alizarin crimson. The red line drawings are made with a Pigma Micron pen. Each drawing is 6x6cm, and there are 24 total.






















Today’s enso is the last one.






















This is the box the series lives in.

Project 7

IMG_0381I stumbled on a paragraph about the Enso (Zen circle) in a book this morning, and it was like coming home. Pretty funny that my blog is called “Making Circles”, and Enso weren’t even on my radar. I’ve used circular forms so much in my work, and have tried to figure out what it is about the circle that I am drawn to. The Enso completely makes sense to me, and in a way reaffirms circle-making for me. I like the idea of letting my hand do the work without my mind getting in the way (similar to folding the 1000 cranes). Although they are traditionally painted, I made this one on our walk today.
