Shelly Hickox said...

I like this one, Seth. Gorgeous!

Jill said...

Lucky Shelly! What beautiful artwork with so much to look at and study. You have layer after layer - creating such a rich surface filled with a myriad of textures. Love the dictionary page peeking through combined with a blend of oriental details and shades to marvel at!

I am hoping you are being financially rewarded for these exquisite intimate images. Shelly is a very fortunate lady and I can see why she is so excited. I think I remember the view from your NY studio window and it amazes me how the depth and richness you are able to achieve in these small reliquaries. Do you have any trouble with the shellac drying??? I am so careful about toxicity with materials due to my present lupus situation. I usually use liquitex mediums but at times they ca be affected by the humidity. Just curious...smile. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

I poured myself a beer, a nice dark one........cut off a chunk of cheese, and clicked on your pictures to see them in GREAT DETAIL. I went slowly from one corner down to the next corner, slowly across, taking in all the rich texture,layers and details and worked my way from corner to corner.
It was my special treat after a five hour drive home from MN in the POURING rain. sigh....very nicely done. :)Bea

i 'SHOT' MY arch this weekend with a flurry of flaming leaves across the top, like a crew cut gone wild. will have to post that...

~*~Magpie's Nest said...

doesn't seem possible that your artwork can get richer and deeper Seth, but WOW!

ArtPropelled said...

That top photograph is making my heart race. There's a tribal thing going on and I love it.

layers said...

Took me a minute but I now see that this is a book--- with the top page being smaller and put on top of the larger piece so it becomes a flap-- how creative.

Kristy C said...

Very cool!

Chris said...

oh my ears and whiskers. why did i miss this?

La Dolce Vita said...

stitching? do I see stitches? so visually chewy!

Gaby Bee said...

Terrific, Seth! Your creations are always a colorful breath of fresh air. I would recognize your work a mile away...

Mandala Michelle said...

I love the rusty colors (of course!) but I am seeing new and beautiful colors emerge. I am trying to stretch myself with new colors myself... and I love the close ups of the writing, the stitching and the black tape too... Roxanne
