See the Sea


One more round in the Inner Works collaboration completed. I just sent off Rita's book to Veronica. And just received Roxanne's book from Jill.

Rita's theme for her altered book is Gifts from the Sea, already beautifully interpreted by Rita and by Jill.

I tried to capture the colors of the sea and sky...



The feel of the sand...



The hues of the beach reflected in the moon...



The sense of being lost in thought when surrounded by the ocean...



And the gift of the never ending inspiration that the sea provides...



Gifts from the sea...Rita...a gift from me!

WOW Seth, your artwork and poetry to go with are amazing! a friend (Pat) told me I had to come right over and check out your Sea post. I just blogged this evening about the book by Anne Morrow Lindbergh "Gift from the sea"
cool!

if you miss "home", that means you're "homesick". If you miss the sea, does that make you "seasick"?
Your aqua is SO refreshing. Thank, I feel very "splashed".

Leslie Avon Miller said...

Constant; that is the sea for certain. As are you Seth; constantly inspiring and constantly inspired. I enjoy that aspect of you – all about the art, the creativity and the connection with fellow artists. Thank you for this.

This is such a great sequence, Seth. I just love it. The one with the two birds seems to have a lovely flickering movement to it.

Brian K said...

Seth! As with all your work... Amazing! Thank you for sharing!

Gillian McMurray said...

This is beautiful. Every time I see a new piece of yours I think it is my favourite - until the next one. I love the poem and the little swallows. Our swallows have returned this week from their time in Africa so it is even more appropriate for me.

Laura Pace said...

I'd say you captured the color, the essence of the sea, the sky the sand the feel of things beautifully, Seth.

Beautifully rendered and written.

enjoy your interpretation of the moon, and the way it also reflects a rugged earthiness of your work... so nice!

Beautiful .... in words and in images!

Lynn said...

Wow...i see the sea...sand...feels good...looks good...is good.

Dale said...

Seth these look so great! I love the colours you used here... i think the contrast of aqua blue and brown are perfect. The circular shape of the brown is perfect for the composition of the page. Wonderful, wonderful work.

Robyn said...

Exactly what I was talking about in the post about blogging.....the buzz one feels when witnessing innovative art is priceless. I return to your blog because I can feel the creativity and your enthusiasm is so incredible. Beautiful work!

~Babs said...

You captured all of it.
Your words and your paint techniques go hand in hand to the sea. I feel the sand between my toes.

3rdEyeMuse said...

oh yes, I'd say you nailed it!

Great pages but then again you know I'm a huge fan of your art!!!

rivergardenstudio said...

Seth, your work, as always, is filled with so much feeling. Here I love the blues, your writing and the textures... I am so excited that you have my book. I am still working on Veronica's but things are coming all together now. Your images fill my mind and I relish seeing your art! Roxanne

Supria Karmakar said...

These images are so soulful..makes me want to escape to the sea, smell the salt water and feel the air, hear the seagulls and sand within and all around my toes....those sunny days are soon here to enjoy again..the gifts of your work are lovely...
Thanks for sharing this post

This is a lovely piece, Seth. I love the play on words with the see and sea - nice birds - beautiful colors - you've captured the feeling and tone of the sea. Beautiful - Fran

Terry Rafferty said...

This is wonderful - not only your pages, but Jill's and Rita's too. A great collaboration. Gift From the Sea by Ann Morrow Lindbergh was an important book for me growing up, it's lovely to see this re-interpretation of it.

Chris said...

This is a fantastic success, Seth.
