Circles and Triangles Continued

Here are two more from the series of designs I’ve been creating over the past few weeks using circles and triangles. These ones are smaller than the piece I shared previously. They are hand cut from 8.5″ x 11′ card stock, and made to fit into 12″ x 12″ square frames.

I’m discovering the best angle and flow of the piece only after the cutting is complete and the excess paper is removed. It seems to change it dramatically, and the way I was seeing it as a work-in-progress is not the same when it’s finished. It’s such a refreshing surprise.

Now that there are five of these, I’m going to stop and reflect upon their meaning and symbolism. It’s something I don’t do often enough and I feel it would strengthen my work.
