This portrait is only made with "flat circles" on a black background. Every circle has a single color, a single tone and a single size. I placed each circle one by one. It's a time consuming method. One week of intense work for this portrait (you can read some more info in the upper left notes on the picture). Please see some details, the work in progress and other portraits here below. If you wish, you can also view this making of my portrait of Elvis Presley (video) to understand how I'm exploiting this technique with circles...

 

(My "Digital Circlism" series was recently featured in "The Telegraph").

 

Remember, Jesus loves us!

When I Follow My Heart

 

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

 

When I follow my heart

I will follow you

What has driven us apart

Shall become again true

Everything is so fresh

When the moments are new

Dreams there to caress

Carry them there through

 

What a lovely day to sing

Giving from its magic touch

When you are to me everything

And I love you so much

Every dream shall come true

That we have here inside

And let them come through

With our hope to ways guide

 

When I follow my beat

That is giving rhythm’s time

I'll walk Sweetness Street

In its blossoming prime

And every love song shall live

To again become love

And from its every beat give

Like the raindrops far above
