Duet

Duet, collage/acrylic, 18 x 24 gallery wrap canvas
By Elizabeth W. Seaver

I always forget to tell you to click on the image to see it a little larger.  It does give more idea of the way it was created and how the paint and collage work together.  Please do that with Duet.  

Especially, I got feedback that the painting in my last post looks so different in person that I encourage folks to click on the photo in this post to see the detail of the collage.  It is more interesting than it looks from "far away!"

It is likely that I will not log any posts for a couple of weeks because I will be away visiting my folks in Texas.  I will miss you all, my blogging friends!  See you towards the end of March.

So adorable! If I hadn't clicked, I wouldn't have noticed the cute little turtle. Very nice. Have a great time in Texas!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Hey, Saundra! Aww, thanks, Friend!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Yeah, the turtle is a bit of a surprise down in the corner, there. Thanks for stopping by, Michelle!

Just adorable! Love those galoshes and striped legs. Yours are ones I ALWAYS open to the larger version because I know there is something interesting going on at the small level. Love the title and the way it ties in with the areas of music paper and that sweet little turtle. I like the way you have music notes on the birds beak too.

Have a great trip. We'll miss you!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

I am looking forward to my trip, thanks!

Is it really legal to have this much fun? You gotta' love this duet. I think those galoshes must be his dancing shoes with all that music playing in the background.

Have a safe and fun trip...

the bird with yellow shoes and the fish all are very nice.

I always enlarge your collage to see the colors ,cuttings and the way you shown the figure,

Wow, I nearly missed this! I think this is wonderful, it's my favourite so far, lovely handling of the paint and those boots add an extra touch of whimsy. :)

I blew it up. Well clicked on it and made it larger and you are right it brings out a lot about what you are doing. Nice colage Elizabeth. Love those yellow boots. As soon as you get your R&R I'll be expecting to see more great art.
