Karma, Illustration Friday

As soon as I received the topic, I knew I wanted to do something with circles. I am a firm believer in the "what comes around, goes around" theory. I have seen it happen to many times in my life to dismiss it.

The painting itself is acrylic on 16 x 20 stretched canvas. Something new for me. I usually do everything 8 x 10 or smaller, and I thing most of my work is actually smaller than 4 x 6. I photographed this piece and added the words in Photoshop.

I'm adding a disclaimer about the words. I'm just going to be honest here (hoping I don't sound totally stupid after my ranting post about copyright). I saw these Laws of Karma written in several different places, as far as I know they are universal--some of the wording was a little different here and there (I myself changed the wording a little so they would fit), but they all seemed relatively the same. I assumed this meant they were a Public Domain thing, so I used them. I'm in no way claiming the words are mine.

    These words are timeless. I have heard them all before but I enjoy reading them every time I see them.

    I. LOVE. THIS.

    I would hang this on my walls today. The colors are amazing. Fabulous work, Kelly.

    I agree with everyone here! And Toni is right on. I would hang this on my walls in a minute, too. Perhaps, you could submit it to or (I believe the latter, scw, has more of a profit for the artist...check them out first). I think your poster would fit beautifully with what they offer there. Good luck!

    I agree with Toni; I would hang this in my home in a minute. I can think of a few others who would, too. It's wonderful!
