Contained Continued

I am continuing to collaborate with Viv and Steph on our project Self Contained. And I have to say, working with these two creative individuals has me very, very inspired. We promise there will one day be a big reveal but until then, here are some glimpses of the recent work I have completed on my own part of the project. Click each image to enlarge for detail - it makes a difference!

The work in progress you represent is wonderful as usual. Personally I cannot wait to see the combined efforts, especially since I have not previously worked on a project of collaboration, but have been thinking about it.

Enjoy the weekend

Oh Seth I am dying here wanting to see more revealed....your collaborations are so intriguing with the viewers asking questions before they open and seek to understand the mysterious layers and metaphors. I think you would be a awesome collaborator with Dan Brown and his novels disclosing secrets and discrepancies in our personal beliefs. I can see you have been extremely busy and prolific these last couple of days. Do you live close to one another...? I ordered the older Art Blogging issue to be able to read your published article about your blog spot. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Gorgeous as always...Seth, how do you do your text? Stamps? Rub ons? magic? The font is always so right for the piece.

Bea said...

Had a fine time clicking for the LARGER PICTURE. wow, what wonderful layers and love the words and the "image" that goes with the word. I can't wait to see this whole project revealed. :)Bea

Some interesting pics are shown here. I really like all of them. You've got your own style and that's what it's all about, isn't it?
Enjoy your weekend!

Love your post! I look at it as witty, funny, serious and magnetic! Thanks for showing us some glimpses of your collaboration with Viv and Steph. Love your bright defined colors, and all of the varied patterns and words/thoughts within the layers on each of your shots. Look forward to your next post on this collab!

Lucky Dip Lisa said...

Cool collab! I visted the other players too and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished project!
I like your choice of text "viewer discretion adivised" very cool~!

Kim said...

Well you certainly managed to contain those sneaky pics! Can't wait to see more of course. Love the textures in discover and the viewer discretion advised text! Now I'm wondering what I need to be advised about LOL!

The big reveal will be eagerly awaited Seth.

Dawn said...

Hi Seth,
I have been reading your blog for awhile, and always amazed by your work. THese are all awesome, and I only hope to paint as half as well as you do!

lynne h said...

well these sneak peaks are sure tasty...

MrCachet said...

3,6,7 & 8 are favorites. With three, you've pointed out Draco, and if you're into Le Francaise, you can probably make out enough characters and words to read about the stars.

WHAT? also, simply because I favor the lettering style. Don't remember the name at the moment, but it's what's used on our money and many old stamps.

La Dolce Vita said...

What???? viewer discretion!??? oh geez, too late I tried it at home! LOL!!!
fab work as always!

BLACK AND WHITE said...

Exciting collaboration!

Paula said...

These are begging to be touched; I loved them before I clicked, but after..well, just wow! The textures and layers are stunning.

viv said...
