I have seen very few paintings on round canvas. Mostly artists and collectors prefer square?rectangular canvases. is there a specific reason for this? In art galleries also one gets to see only rectangular or squares in various sizes. I often wonder why?

p.s. WoW Jean that is fantastic... love the subject
Is that on a diy drum then?!

Thanks Anton Yes I made the drums myself.  I still need to find the site where I got the materials. You get a wooden ring and the skins and sinew.  You have to soak the skins and sinew before stretching over the rings then let dry before you can start painting them.  After that you can add the beads leather and feathers.
