Happy Hands

Eric Adama, a talented artist from the Netherlands, highlighted a topic that is close to my heart on this post on his blog Cerulean: hands. Hands down my favorite picture from his post is the first image of Louise Bourgeois. And what a quote: "I am not what I am, I am what I do with my hands." Also included among the selection of images was a mosaic that Eric put together of my Making Waves series. Thanks for the shout out Eric.


The newest addition to the Making Waves family is Tyche, the Greek Goddess of Luck, Destiny, and Fortune.


Available for purchase in my Etsy Shop.

Sold. Thank you!

I am in awe over the hands...our hands are so expressive of who we are and how we think (we use them to communicate)...I've always noticed people's hands and how they use them.

Love the quote! Thank you for sharing the Adams post.

Wonderful mosaic of all of your great hands.

One of the most marvelously expressive pair of hands I've seen belongs to Sam Gilliam.

LOVE that series Seth. While I was 'potting' my works also featured hands. Must blog them one day.

Oh ... be still my beating heart! Your gorgeous collection makes a wonderful poster Seth! I recently acquired fifteen pair of modern mannequin hands, some will feature in a work in progress!

Hands are one of my favorite images and I've been loving the hands you've created, Seth. But to see them all together like this is beyond words.

I love the collage of your hands, too. I always knew you had happy hands!
