Spread 137 – Circles of Men

6 July 2013

Black and white gesso, vintage and personal images, white Sigano pen, black carbon paper, Nova color acrylic paint.

“Imagine a man who values the men in his life.

A man who sits in the circles of men.

Who is reminded of the truth about himself when he forgets”

    Love the strong colors and powerful movement in this journal spread Brian! Kinda reminds me of of an animated short called “Feet of Song” by Erica Russell…I can almost hear a tribal drum in this circle of men!
