I want you to know I read your posts almost every time your write and I love to see what you are working on. Because of you I look for old metal thingys now and wonder what I can do with them! Some day I will have the gumption to actually put some things together. Enjoy your Easter.

I simply love anything you make with metal in it. These are no exception.

Happy Easter. I'll see you tomorrow.

These are really nice pieces, Seth! The colors, the textures, everything- very crunchy! (that's a good thing)

Beautiful piece of art. The rust is like aged love. Perfect touch.

ArtPropelled said...

These pieces are wonderful Seth. I've just spent an hour .... or more ... scrolling down through your blog, enjoying everything all over again. There are some pieces you've created that make my heart just about jump out of my chest. Your conteXture pages especially. Have you thought of opening a Flickr file so we can look at all your work together? I'm addicted to Flickr!

Fantastic pieces!

Terrific! i love terresa's comment "rust is like aged love". . .

seth - do you "rust" your own? or do you find items that already "rusted"?

if the former, what do you use?

I'm with Robyn on the opening of a Flickr page! I know, more computer time! Both great pieces Seth. Love that blue paper in the background of 'Dune' that keeps turning up in various pieces.

Crossing and Dune are just perfect pieces to reflect Desert sands. Love the contrasting layered colors and rough textures-more of your superb works to smile at!

Don Madden said...

I like your combination of rusty metal with aqua blue in "Crossing".
Great work!

I am so pleased to see that I'm not the only one who collects runned-over bottle caps in carparks!

Love it!

I LOVE these two pieces. Their spareness and exquisite colors are very appealing.
