For years I would create a new calendar comprised from my Circle of Life collection of bright, colorful landscape paintings. But, I've been slacking, I will admit it, and haven't created one for a few years, but I'm back at it and just released the 2021 calendar with all new designs!
The great thing about these calendars is you don't have to dispose of them once the year is over, you can continue to display the calendar as art, or even remove the art pages from the calendar and frame them to enjoy for years to come. Knowing this I'm going to make a point of creating each new calendar with never before used art so you have the option to use the art in different ways for displaying in your home or office.
For those who may not know, my Circle of Life collection is one of my post popular series I have ever created. The paintings are always super colorful, using rich, vibrant shades of every color imaginable, and always feature the black silhouette of a tree, surrounded by floating circles in various sizes and colors. My inspiration for this colorful and whimsical series comes from living life to it’s fullest and repeatedly seeing how the good and bad in life always come full circle. Gustav Klimt is another inspiring force behind my use of circles and other shapes in my paintings. His ability to take unrelated shapes and interpose them to create a painting of beauty and mastery is enthralling and inspirational.
“The nature of God is a circle of which the center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere.” ~ Empedocles
Since 2013 I have come out with my annual "Circle of Life" calendar and it is always a best seller, I just released the 2016 edition last week and it's already the most popular calendar on Zazzle!!
My "Circle of Life" Collection has always been one of my most colorful, fun art series I have ever done and seems to appeal to just about everyone. It's the perfect calendar to place anywhere whether in the kitchen, craft room, office or any place you'd like a pop of color to inspire you to have a wonderful day, each and every day. And when the year is up you can even take the design out of the calendar and frame them up to enjoy as wall art!
There are three sizes available and you can change the color of the binding as well, a great gift to yourself that gives back all year round or the perfect stocking stuffer or gift for loved one's and/or co-workers even. I hope you enjoy the newest edition!!
