circles are my favorite shape, and i cannot get enough of them! the curve is addictive, and they are everywhere in my artwork, so i had trouble deciding what to post for this topic. i have been working on this dragonfly this week, and when i finished the wings, i knew it was the one! they are klimt-inspired wings.

Have you ever studied the Art Nouveau (sp?) style from the early 20th century? Your focus on lines reminds me of that style, although I think Art Nouveau is a little more "organic" (not a criticism, just an observation)

Okay...maybe I'm wrong about the organic part.

Very pretty, it looks like a piece of wrought-wire jewellery.
