. . . Swirly. . . Swirling. . . 
Our theme this week is one that will lend itself to
any medium (unless you work in razor blades and nails,
but even then I'm sure a swirl could be 
fashioned out of those somehow!)

Swirling shapes are often found in nature.

It lends itself to the abstract.

Maybe swirls make you think of music.

The art nouveau painters incorporated swirls in their art.
I really love her swirling hair!

Swirls also make me think of beautiful lampwork beads. 
The flowing molten glass is ultra-swirly.

This reminds me of a paisley pattern
which has oodles of swirls.

So let's see your  
Swirly Art!
As always, any medium is welcome;
post your link back here by Sunday July 29 at noon.

But, most important, have fun with this flowing, organic shape!

Oh perfect!! I'm a little obsessed with doodling swirls, painting & collaging swirls. In fact the first canvas painting I sold was a large multi-media swirl.
Thank you for this week's challenge - I love it & despite the chaos of the school summer hols I intend to make time to join in this week! I miss everyone when I haven't joined in for a while.

Kat :-) Xx
