Bubbles and Circles

Updated: Feb 8

BUBBLES BUBBLES BUBBLES…WHO DOESN’T LOVE BUBBLES? WHEN I FIRST SAW ARTIST PAT CONLON’S BUBBLE COLLECTION, I WAS IMMEDIATELY DRAWN TO IT. MY HUSBAND AND I PURCHASED THIS CUSTOM DESIGNED PIECE FOR OUR HOME AND EACH TIME I LOOK AT IT, I LOVE IT EVEN MORE. I LOVE NEW YORK. I LOVE THAT PAT INCLUDES A “CRACKER JACK” SURPRISE IN EACH OF HIS CUSTOM RECYCLED CANVAS PIECES. I LOVE BUBBLES AND I LOVE CIRCLES. MY WHOLE ADULT LIFE, I HAVE LIVED IN HOOP EARRINGS AND BANGLE BRACELETS! 

SO WHAT GIVES I ASKED MYSELF? THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT CIRCLES THAT MAKE US FEEL SAFE…OUR FAMILY CIRCLES, FRIEND CIRCLES, FAITH CIRCLES, SPORTS CIRCLES, ETC…CIRCLES PROJECT A POSITIVE EMOTIONAL MESSAGE, COMMUNITY, FRIENDSHIP, LOVE, SECURITY, AND UNITY. THIS IS WHY THERE ARE SO MANY CIRCULAR LOGOS OUT THERE!

IN MANUEL LIMA’S 2017 BOOK TITLED “THE BOOK OF CIRCLES: VISUALIZING SPHERES OF KNOWLEDGE”, HE THEORIZES THAT THE CURVED SHAPE OF THE HUMAN EYE DRAWS US TO CIRCLES MORE THAN ANY OTHER SHAPE. THIS LOOKS LIKE A REALLY COOL BOOK TO STUDY!

JUST FOR FUN AND SINCE I HAVE HAD A BIT OF EXTRA TIME ON MY HANDS, I STARTED THINKING ABOUT ALL THE CIRCLES OUT THERE…COMMENT IF YOU HAVE ANY FUN AND POSITIVE ONES NOT LISTED IN THIS POST! BUBBLES, WEDDING BANDS, HULA HOOPS, CAKES, PIES, PIZZA, MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, FRISBEES, CLOCKS, FERRIS WHEELS, MOON, SUN, PLANETS, RAINBOWS, BALLS, BUTTONS, CIRCLE OF LIFE, COINS, ICONIC LOGOS, DONUTS, BAGELS, WREATHS, CHEERIOS, WHEELS….PLEASE KEEP IT POSITIVE!

AND NOW I WILL CIRCLE BACK…YOU CAN CHECK OUT MORE OF PAT’S WORK ON HIS INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT @PATCONLON OR WWW.CONLONCLIQUE.COM. FOR THOSE OF YOU IN SAN DIEGO, HIS ARTWORK IS DISPLAYED AT DEATH BY TEQUILA IN ENCINITAS. ONCE THEY ARE OPEN, YOU HAVE TO GO CHECK IT OUT AND ALSO SUPPORT A LOCAL BUSINESS!!!

AND I LEAVE YOU WITH THIS…“WE COULDN’T TURN AROUND ‘TIL WE WERE UPSIDE DOWN”-POST MALONE-CIRCLES. WE HAVE ALL BEEN TURNED UPSIDE DOWN. LET’S DO THE WORK, LEND THE HAND, AND TURN IT AROUND.
