PLAYING WITH CIRCLES

BURST OUT – © Sue O’Kieffe 2008

One of the pleasures of Art Every Day Month is that I get to give myself permission to try out new things. I set out creating this design with a desire to experiment with watercolor frisket, and to play more with watercolor crayons and twinkling h2o’s.

What did I learn? Well,  you really do need the right tools (note to self:add that frisket nib and new brushes to art store shopping list). It probably takes experimenting to learn what those tools are. Oh yea, and it’s fun to burst out in new directions.

This kind of reminds me of one of those wall clocks from the 50’s, no doubt inspired by sputnik. (Does anyone else here besides me even remember sputnik?)

What do you see?
