I'm new at this whole blog world and still in the process of personalizing my blog layout. I never dreamed that it would be so complicated...Html is a language I have a hard time understanding (although I have picked up on some such as changing margins and some borders) Creating a nice background or right side and left side borders for my page...still yet to master. Today, I created this circle pattern in hopes to use it as a design element on my page - now to just get it onto the page successfully. I covet any advice anyone is willing to pass my way.

The second in my series..."Circles of Life". The figures in this painting are brother and sister...my niece and nephew. For this 30"X24" Oil Painting, I continued my exploration of shapes and pattern by filling the entire background with the pattern of multiple circles.
This is the first painting in a series that I am working on - 24"x30" Oil on canvas. I have titled my series "Circles of Life". In this series, I am continuing my study of figure/portraiture while giving a more contemporary feel by exploring the use of pattern and shape.
