2014 Gratitude Festival Day #19: Concentric Circles

In 1913, a celebrated Russian painter, Wassily Kandinsky, started painting circles within circles within circles carefully placed into rectangles and then each carefully aligned one after another. I’m a big fan of his painting “Concentric Circles” and I’m a big fan of many of his others. Grateful for primary colors. Grateful for thoughtful repetition. Grateful for bold combinations and simple pairing. Grateful for oil pastels…they are like crayons…but on steroids…grateful for the accessibility of great works of art….today I am grateful for Wassily Kandinsky.
