Three Drawings from Sybil

In December, my friend Sybil sent me an e-mail with three of her recent drawings. (Used with her permission.) Here's some of what I liked about them (from my reply to her):
  • The patterns instead of solid colors - I should try more of that
  • The shapes that pull away from the main shape, like puzzle pieces that could fit back together
  • The curvy lines with dots or circles out at their far ends
  • The graceful lines that make emphatic shapes
  • The colors and patterns that almost repeat, but don't
  • The lines parallel to each other that make new shapes
  • The color combinations, bright but harmonic
  • I feel myself pulled into them - it is very meditative
