This painting, Dutch Interior 1 (1928), is by Spanish artist, Joan Miro (1893 – 1983). It is a circular compositional structure. Miro achieved balance and unity by using repeated shapes and colors. Circular compositions suggest a central point even when nothing identifies the centre. When several shapes are in a group they suggest their own central point. A circular design leads the viewers around the painting and in and out of the painting. (H.R. Poore, N. Goldstein)
The second image is my painting, Cherries. I have also cropped the image to show the circular composition of the cherries. The cherries are circular shapes and combine to create a larger circular design. The cropped image can stand as a painting. The image is united by repeated shapes and colors. The design leads viewers around the painting and in and out of the painting.
It appears that Zazzle.com is having a 50% off sale on a product for 4 hours every Friday. The hours are from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, Eastern Time. At 5:01 pm until the end of the weekend the product sells for 20% off. I do not know if these Zazzle.com sales will continue. When I receive the sale’s notice, I first post information about the sale on my Zazzle shop announcement (around 2 pm, Eastern Time). I then post information immediately on my blog, twitter, myspace.com and facebook.com. I started my holiday shopping by buying an item at 50% off.
