Submit up to three (3) images relating to or displaying the essence of the theme. This week’s theme is “Circles” – anything that contains circular forms OR contains a subject that folds back on itself OR suggests a cyclical nature. The judge is intentionally leaving it wide open, from physical to metaphysical, because his forté is fine art, and he wants the submitters to have the freedom to interpret. Tracy says, “I’m looking for something that moves me emotionally, or involves me or enlightens me. Something that would stand the test of time on a living room wall.”
