This is turning out to be quite an inspirational series, Seth. The quotes you add to highlight these lovely pieces add even more meaning and symbolism.

Happy New Year and keep daring to dream!

I like the first - best. I see the sky as blue, even if it isn't. It looks like tall buildings and fireworks.

I don't know when we 'got together' in 2009, but for myself - I look forward to MORE in 2010. You're an inspiration.

I love the combination of words and art, Seth, and all that lovely texture. A wonderful, inspirational series.

Here's to dreams of a terrific New Year!

I love them both- your words in your artwork are always a favorite for me. And, I think the chance to buy one will be slim to none by tomorrow- they zoom right off your esty shelf!
Wishing you lots of "dares to reach" for 2010 and that in all your art work, you "take a chance" to stretch your creativity, experiment and reach for one more shining star to realize your dreams!
