Reflection on pattern and abstraction of the subconscious

Circle Journal Love

It all began one late summer night in the year 2009, a band of Artfest enthusiasts joined forces to create a circle. Thanks to the prompting of Alexandra Castro Ferreira, each friend in the circle began an art journal with a theme. We have then passed our journals around in a route so that each journal would contain the art of the others.

My addition to Emily‘s journal, big girl’s coloring book:

The circle almost complete, the journals are finding their way home. Mine made it back to me full of beauty. The theme I chose was Symbols-Personal Imagery with the intent of getting a glimpse of each artist’s own personal style and patterns.
