What Happens in Vega...


Vega...the fourth piece in my star series. Vega is the brilliant luminary of the exquisite constellation Lyra, the Lyre or harp of antiquity. It is the fifth brightest star in the sky and one of the closer stars to the Earth. It is often referred to as the most important star in the sky following the Sun. My interpretation uses found metal objects and silver metallic acrylic as symbols of Vega's luminosity.




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

Available for purchase in The Altered Page on Etsy.

Sold. Thank you!

Your work is absolutely stunning...to be honest, I am a little intimidated in regards to the Inner Works project ;)

Great idea! I wonder if you have ever though of including a light source? It's something I keep thinking I must get around to one of these days.Just a thought!

Love the back ground surface, really adds to the whole piece and always love the rusty stuff. Like diamonds to me.

Of course I love your art, Seth, but I reallly like the title of this post. At first I wondered what had happened to the "s". . .

Marilyn said...

Seth, these are very unique and cool pieces of art. Such thoughtful creativity and planetary explanations included!

where have I been? did you save this for me? I missed the other one, and the one before this one and so now the other people and I are going to have to barter rigorously with each other, you know, like in Monopoly with the properties, to get the whole series in one place. What the F? You KNOW I'm a stars and planets FREAK!! come ON!!


oh, I know. I'll commission a new series from you on the first four discovered moons of Jupiter, the Galileo satellites. Get started!


I think one is called IO, and there's an EA and a U. So that means, U make one EA of the four and IO you.

hahahahAHAAHAAH!!!


going for more coffee...
