Sold. Thank you!

A big thank you goes out to LaWendula and her wonderful blog LaWendeltreppe (which means lavender spiralstaircase in German). She highlights my blog and artwork in this post. In case you do not speak German, here is the translation of her text:

"Dears, if you are busy and only on your way through, please don’t click on this blog, because it’s so full of interesting pics, ideas and inspirations, you can really get lost in it. Seth wrote me a comment on the blog about Bridgette’s art and checking his site, I was really delighted. Take a look."

If her blog is new to you, take some time to browse. I am certain that you will recognize the artwork of some familiar faces and be introduced to some new artists as well. Thanks LaWendula!

Hi Seth! I have made my bundle into a tenminute collage! If you have a minute to spare, pop over to my site and tell me what you think of it.

Wonderful texture again. Love the colours, which together with the text is leaving me with images of refracted light and sunshine. Can you tell it's winter here, LOL. Having said that we did have one of those pink skies here after a storm last week too. The wonder and joy of a sub tropical climate! Colour!

Hi Seth,
One thousand windows open to the air...great poetry & wonderful image. I'm in!
Have sent other comments to your blog in the last couple of weeks & they don't seem to make it. (My error I'm sure!) Hope this one makes it.
(Would love to have one of your art works one day!

Wonderful piece. I so enjoy being able to catch up on what you've been doing lately. So many wonderful projects. Can't wait to see all their completions.

Let's hear it for our neighbors across the sea.
Feels like momentum is building over there. How is it that we Americans speak so FEW additional languages? Mercí for the translation.
May the light of many other Blogs shine on you.

I'm always impressed with the layers and layers of various media you use in your art. Your art is always a treat, and I'm really sorry I've been so busy I haven't had time to visit more often lately. Hopefully things will calm down now, and I can come more often to this, one of my favorite and inspirational blogs (and artist, too).
