Solstice Sunrise

Continuing my Solstice Series, these pieces all include found metal objects. Some are also made with found papers. I decided it was time to use more of my finds rather than just watch the piles grow and grow. Inspired by the Solstice, these pieces represent to me the beauty of winter, transitions from darkness to light, and the natural evolution of time. The first three posted are available for purchase in my Etsy shop. The last three were made to complete a blog project from one year ago and will be winding their way to three people, who I hope will be happily surprised.









Ingredients: watercolor paper, acrylic paint, watercolor paint, dye ink, calligraphy ink, dry transfer, altered paper, found paper, found metal objects, wire, eyelets. sizes range from 3 31/2" x 2 1/4" to 3 3/4" x 2 3/4". click images to enlarge.

All pieces sold. Thank you!

fantastic series of work! I find it so hard to work with many different objects - you assemble them perfectly.

Thanks for visiting my blog as well! I appreciate you taking the time and commenting. Means a lot!

These compliment the first ones in the series so well. Beautiful. I'm sure the recipients of the last three will be more than happy with them.

These are so beautiful! If I had gotten here a bit earlier, I would have added one to my collection.

You've also inspired me to make some small collages again.

Love the silvery blues and grays you've captured so beautifully in these pieces Seth! I was just noticing those colors in the landscape today. Very inspiring on many levels, I like your idea too, of using what we already have close at hand.....

I am certain the recipients will be more than happily surprised (I'm thinking more like giddily thrilled) to receive their pieces.

lovely, lovely work.
