Another winning contribution you made Seth - this and the '2' entries on the 'friends' theme - well thought out and you continue to delight me in how you apply your 'signature' style.

I am so hoping these works will be published for the rest of the art world to cherish. The textures are so rich and make one want to reach out and touch the surface. Your words and images invite questions as you marry your mark making in this beautiful collaboration. Thank you for sharing your personal journey in this collaboration. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Oh, glorious work! Lovely materials salvaged to become real artwork. "They said it couldn't be done." Thank you, Seth. You have reminded me that even with ears and eyes, we still have touch to teach us so much about our world.

These are gorgeous pages Seth. More pages that I didn't get to see in Supria's book. Just love all of the different applications, embellishments and combination of pictures, layers, lettering, textures and designs. The line "the best and most beautiful things can not be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart" is one of my favorites! Supria is so lucky to have these amazing pages in her book!

I am truly drawn to the sepia and earth tones, bits and pieces and old ephemera and the way you put it all together, time and time again. I wish I could just reach in my computer and touch the beauty you create.

My first thought was that your art is something one drools over, and then I thought that sounded rather crude, but it is quite delicious none the less.

The star on top seemed to me to be something huge and metal/concrete something one would see on a street somewhere...I was surprised to see it as part of the book page.

I find it all simply amazingly beautiful...the words too/Helen Keller//it all touches my heart.

A stunning creation. Wish I could view it in person.

This book reads feminine to me, and I never think feminine with your art. I would say this is a super interpretation of the pages in this book.

Marie said...

I'm sure each artist is thrilled with how you well you interpreted their themes. All your pages are so different & so wonderful! My favorites are: 1."dream of the earth",(fantastic colors & sky word image), 2. the "light" "I lift my lamp" page, (surprising and inspired image), and 3. the "paper wings" page, (very beautiful). And my most favorite image of all is the star with the signing hand! I'm sure Helen Keller is smiling!

Seth! I missed this posting! Far oout! Now it's my turn to be speechless.

Wagon Mom said...
