About Shapes

I was disappointed in the way these two pages turned out, but I’m trying not to be picky because it’s a process journal after all. I do like the heart though. In one of my other journals I sketched several heart designs thinking that I’d like to turn them into a series. While I haven’t done this yet, hopefully I’ll do it in the future.
There’s something very satisfying about the shape of a heart. To me it’s a symbol of warmth, courage and feeling. It reminds me of an embrace.
I’m also drawn to triangles. If you take a photo of an ordinary scene and cut a triangle out of it (especially one with steep sides) – everything changes. The triangular scene becomes a doorway you look through to catch a glimpse of something higher.
