I'm going in circles.

I'm going in CIRCLES! (Sometimes it feels like it's in every sense of the word.) Almost every painting I've painted this year has been a circle. I like this shape because it exaggerates the fisheye perspective in my work and has a captivating look when it's hung on a wall. It reminds me of a porthole.
Funny enough, back in 1996, I had an exhibition of portraits all painted on circles entitled "Provincetown Portrait Show" in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. It was unusual and well received and I'm surprised it's taken me 22 years to get back to it.
So if you have any commission ideas that would work in a circle, let me know. But keep in mind, all commissions are welcomed. Murals, family portraits, animal portraits, historical characters, rabbis, popes... no idea is too far-fetched.
Hope to see you soon
