Oh my, I get to leave the first comment. These are fantastic Seth. I studied the enlarged pics just to take in all the texture. I love what you do, and how you make your art so interesting and unique. Great work!

I adore them both but the texture on the first one is amazing! I love that I can enlarge them and study every bump and ridge and feel like I can almost feel it through the screen. Awesome!
Peace & Love,
~Barb~

the colors of both are so appealing to me ... both seem to sing.

Wow - the first piece is wonderful. I was doing some wall art this weekend where we spent the day filling wallpaper with all sorts of images. So, this reminds me that I could get cracking on a smaller scale! Thanks for the inspiration.

Dawn said...

The story so far hits a chord. What a wonderful little piece. The circles are so delectable.

Jo said...

I like the fact you have listed the "ingredients" to your piece...the details are wonderful...you have an eye for it, that's for sure.

Shayla said...

So many fun ingredients in there.

The first one reminds me of a sample from an 1890's print shop.

Lovely work as usual, Seth!
What is "dry transfer," though?

bockel24 said...

love everything about your Detour piece, Seth!

Karin said...

Like everyone above has said, these are wonderful - the textures are soooo appealing! But it's the whole package that makes them sing - the imagery, the printed text peaking through, the hand written hints of words, the mood set by those blues, all exquisitely crafted, as always. Best of all is the peaceful mysteriousness I feel...

Seth, these pieces, are so calming in the shades of blue that you have chosen, and the black ink details. I wish you could give me a lesson in transfers. I have a long way to go. I love how you have so much fun with your art. Roxanne

Very nice blues...lovely mood!

tangled sky studio said...

seth,
all these shades of blue definitely inspire a mood...a miles davis "kind of blue" mood which is subtle and luscious all at the same time. i'm amazed at the amount of depth you are able to achieve on paper...
thanks for visiting my blog and expanding the on line connection...

These are amazing. All the ingredients come together to make really unique pieces. Thanks for sharing the "tools" used. What is a dry transfer?
