going around in circles

During this  last year  i have become quite interested in dots and circles and round shapes. i know these shapes are everywhere in nature and man made is just that i noice them  more  . many a song lyric ponders the ins and out of circles and what it  might mean . cycles of life .beginning and ending. these shapes  have always been  there  but lately they stand out to me . cheerios, tires, spots on the ceiling  that are patches in  a remolding restaurant as i look up, my glasses,hives, rings, sunsets, and polka dotted fabric all greet me hello .
  the banner of my blog shows painted fabric drying in the lids of dairy product containers.
these dots appear on my fabrics and papers using  paint, corks , eraser tips, and my hands.
 painting with the originals tools, hands  especially finger tips, is  a most  playful way to apply color to surfaces.
if you are wondering about the last photo of a clock with out hands
i would have to say when painting i don't notice time.
