Lucky Dip Lisa said...

Oh, I bet you had a whole lotta fun creating this!

As I saw this I thought...To melt is not nessecarily to be destroyed, rather take on another form of itself...intersting concept!

Your words are hauntingly beautiful...the textures seem to steam and brew your narrative into visibility... I am hoping you are warm and safe tonight...I saw your weather and the snow keeps returning. We have a front coming in again but nothing like your present storm. Imagine a warm Peace...taste a fresh snowflake on your tongue. Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Gorgeous layering and depth! Love this!

Jill Zaheer said...

Wait, does this have something to do with your Book Guild? Lisa and I haven't moved from our seats-so we certainly hope so! ;) Melt is so rich with rustic colors and has wonderful texture to match. Love the poem with it-a little different from some of your recent works-but all "brilliant you" through and through.

Blues and browns together are a favorite combination of mine. You have done it just right!

You make coffee grounds look elegant.

Very sad poem.
I like the word melt. It sounds so smooth, our "schmelzen" is totally different.

MUCH cooler on your canvas!

Danielle said...

Beautiful. Love the art. So much depth. And the poem. lovely.

Lynn said...

coffee grounds...not that is the kind of thing I expect to find here...something that makes me laugh and surprises me in the most delightful ways.
Thanks for the ingrediants. I love it/them.
Oh, the art is great too! LOL

Marilyn said...

What a beautiful piece. I especially like the poem. It definitely adds to the art.

kelsey said...

Oh how I love this colour combo Seth!!! Simply deep, rich and it hints of so much texture. Wonderful!

layers said...

I could stare at this one a long time-- love the luscious colors and textures and the poetry matches so well

Monica said...

Gorgeous, love this. Great use of materials too.

azirca said...

The merge of colours and textures are perfect. I do envy your ability to create these textural pieces with natural looking patinas that look like they are time worn.

Karin Bartimole said...

gorgeous rich texture and tones. You are a master of surface design! your poem is moving as well.

Bill C. said...

If money weren't so scarce right now, I'd be buying this. But at least I can tell you it is beautiful! :^) By the way, in my opinion, coffee is the nectar of the gods. The grounds must be leftover treasure.

Bea said...

Seth, I opened my new Cloth, Paper, Scissors to find your article on your graffiti wall on page 15. Well done! :)Bea
