The Circle Game

After a little time out for an In-Between, we’re (both of me) moving right along… round and round and round in The Circle Game. Now we’re diving into the shadows with super-soft squirrel hair brushes. They are so soft, before I commit to the painting, I make a few practice strokes to help my body remember the feeling of a brush with zero spring. It’s magical. It feels like there is no brush there at all. I think the paper must love such a feathery light touch. Unless it’s ticklish.
