Journal Fodder 365 - Prompt #36
The prompt this week was personal symbols. It wanted us to look at lines, shapes, images that we use over and over again.
Anyone who has followed this blog for a while will have noticed that I like circles. They turn up in my pages either as underlying collage elements (love my large circle punch!) or stencils, solid or in outline. There is just something inherently pleasing about them - the regularity of the shape, the soft no-corners roundness.
Then you have to look at their symbolic message - eternity, no beginning or end. It speaks to my soul of completeness, which, if we're honest, is what we're all looking for.
What shapes keep turning up in your artwork?
