Star Gazing

Polaris. Another piece in my Star Series. Polaris is the pole star, directly above the north pole. It remains practically motionless in the sky and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it.





Ingredients: watercolor paper, acrylic paint, calligraphy ink, dry transfer, found metal objects, wire, eyelets, brads. 6" x 4 1/2". click to enlarge.

Available for purchase in The Altered Page on Etsy.

Sold. Thank you!

Another great piece Seth. I love the composition on this, and also the blue color, and the texture. Your textures are always so interesting, and make me think, How did he do this? And of course I always love the found objects. Excellent series!
