Emma


Still working on using the many step-out pieces from Gaze, my spotlight project in Pam Carriker's book Art at the Speed of Life.


I have already posted Passages, the first artwork I made using these pieces. And now there is Emma. Apparently I decided to channel my softer side with this piece - LOL!



Available for purchase in The Altered Page on Etsy.

Love it! Love Emma! ;-)
And I am enjoying the book tremendously. It is such a great thing to read in the evening and think over and take notes.
No doubt, I will end up doing a review on my blog because I feel it is such a supportive, accessible tool for artists either in a block, without time management skills (ahem!) or others just starting their creative path.

XXOO~~♥

Your 'soft' is still rather hard edged! -J

the "softer" side, a dialogue within perhaps--but the bridge there is still "you" with the rusty bits and the blues

enjoy your (warmish)weekend!

I have to agree, she looks a little "chilly" but maybe she has a sad story to share....

Emma has a delightful color sense, Seth. Perhaps she should join in on fashion week!

jgr said...

Yes, the colors are beautiful! Soft perhaps- but still with a rustic, aged look.

Seth, I love Emma. I read some of the comments and to me, she looks mysteriously happy (when I enlarge the pic)- especially for that time period when people didn't smile in photographs. Love the addition of the pastel colorings blending in with all of the layers and adornments!

It's good to go to the softer side once in awhile...I need to do this more often myself. I also need to stop putting off to a "good time" to read Pam's book! This weekend for sure!!!

Following development of this project you made my decision definitive: I'm ordering: "Art at the Speed of Life".

Gayle said...

I don,t know about a 'softer side' but Emma is definitely complex. I really like the depth, the layers that she pushes out of.

n2theblue said...

The fabrics do add a lovely softness. And I agree with Jill -- I think she's quite content. Maybe she has a sweet secret.

HEY! I recognize that beautiful bit of handwriting on the cream paper in that gorgeous piece of yours! Nice choice, if I may say so myself!!! :D I hope all is well with you, I'll bet you're enjoying the warmer weather, right?!? xoxo

Stephanie said...

I love this piece, a real feeling of history and a story embedded there.

Bill said...

alteredbits said...

I've been diving deep into the early 19th century with Tracy Chevalier's "Remarkable Creatures," set in the same era as Jane Austen's novels. Your "Emma" brings Chevalier's novel to life and offers another side to that delightfully pre-Victorian era. Thanks!

this is good mostly i think because of the colors and how it seems you are looking down upon layers of a square pyramid very dimensional effect make more soft is good

Love Passages, Emma, AND your softer side Seth - nice to see some variety popping up in your textural wonders!
