Birds on the March in May

Happy May Day to all of you in my half of the world.

My output has been in small to tiny units over the last few weeks.  My big painting is 5 x 5 inches.  I've made oodles of my collage pins for sale at LibertyTown (you see them here ready to march to the shelves over the weekend.)





And, I haven't been over to see them on display yet, but I was asked to be a part of the local artist spot in a new bookstore opening in Fredericksburg area today, Joseph-Beth Booksellers. I have plans for another "migration" and will share if it happens.

I've also been working on a commissioned work for someone who wanted a piece of mine in a show last year, but it had already sold.  She asked me to paint something similar for a friend who is retiring.  If she doesn't like it, I will put it in my show next month.  Next month.  Yikes.  I've got to go paint!

All This and Retirement, Too, 5 x 5, collage/acrylic, Elizabeth W. Seaver



Later.

That's really cool about the bookstore Elizabeth. Being out at "the mall" should reach a whole new group of people! Off to see Sheep! :)

So cute l'ensemble de ces petits collages.
La peinture que vous avez en commande est fantastique pour une prise en retraite... je ne pense pas qu'elle ne puisse pas plaire.
Félicitations.
Joyeux 1er mai et tous mes remerciements pour votre gentil passage sur mon blog.

Deborah, Celeste and Meaningful Life: hearing from you lifts my artistic spirits! I don't know where I'd be without the encouragement of other artists in the blogging community.

WHAT CREATIVITY!!! I admire that more than ANYTHING!!!!
And thanks for the comment about the Gadsden "brow" painting...I actually do not know what special thing things they will do...I heard today that they are planning to keep it in their collection, and they asked permission to use it in promo materials...I still think they muight auction it to raise $$ for the museum :)

Hello Elizabeth! Those bird collages are just exquisite. Whenever I see your work I realize just how one dee and textureless my paintings are.

Thanks for the prompt.

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Thanks, Kathleen. I love spring, and nothing says "spring" like little birdies!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Hi, Susan. Glad you stopped by. Yes, the trouble is controlling myself and saying "no" when I need to!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Hey, Andrew! Don't you dare talk about your wild and wonderful whimsy in a disparaging way. It's fabulous! I do appreciate your positive remarks. Thanks for dropping by.
