My vision for this painting was to try and connect 19 concentric circles. Once I accomplished that the rest of the painting came into being.. I have had many people ask me if I used colored thread and a needle to do the pattern around the circles! Of course I just used paint.. The sides of this canvas have been finished. No framing is necessary..it's ready to hang.. This painting would make a beautiful- bold addition to any space! This artwork is part of my Patterns of Color collection...
