Eccentric Circles

Before heading off to Chicago for a fun weekend with some special friends, I'm posting 3 solutions to this week's Diva Challenge #74 (see link button at right), another of her String Theory series. This Challenge really fascinated me - I found myself drawing several strings in different formats on different papers all week long.  Here are the ones I ended up liking the best - interesting that all ended up on 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" inch tiles.

The Diva quotes Wikipedia's definition of eccentric (as opposed to concentric) circles as "an eccentric or elliptical orbit having a different center." For some reason, this strikes me not only as a great Diva Challenge (is there any other kind?) but also as a potential theme for this weekend!

  1. I've been wanting to do a ZIA on a black tile. I'm afraid to. Anyway, these are great, however, you're last one is awesome. I see a few different images in that one. A bulging eye and a spotlight. The list goes on.

  2. I really love the first one... it looks like a net of shells. Really nice.

  3. O, these are so beatiful, you did a great job with it. Especially the first one, that's my favorie.

  6. So very interesting and brilliant.
