"Polygons II"

From Natasa's Art
In this series each painting has a circle and a polygon inside it. Polygon has the same shape in every painting. However, it is divided into different triangles. Each triangle has a circle inside positioned so it touches all three sides of the triangle. Depending on the triangle configuration each painting looks different and circle arrangement varies.
