I have been working with circles (orbs) in my own work and wanted to incorporate that into my drawing. At the same time I had been thinking alot about the situation going on in Japan. I decided that one area in the piece would be a red circle and the rest would stay black.
While we all started with the same materials, instructions, and base drawing, Every piece turned out different. After I finished my drawing I enjoyed discovering what the other artists did with their pieces.
This is my final piece that will be added to the exhibion.
