Bird Song

Bird Song, 6 x 6 framed, collage
Elizabeth W. Seaver
Sold

I put this little guy on the wall in my studio yesterday, and it sold within a couple of hours.  It's so nice when a piece "flies" out the door like that.

It occurred to me that I had not ever posted about the opening of my public art piece, I Should Have Turned Left at Albuquerque. It was unveiled on July 2nd, and my parents and sister were able to be there.  I have some pictures of the actual event, but I need to scan them into the computer.  Here is the finished panel.

42 x 59 public art panel, Elizabeth W. Seaver

I'm recapping this event because just today I got commissioned to paint a 30 x 40 canvas as a Christmas present for someone who loves the one downtown.  Pretty cool!

THAT IS SO AWESOME! Elizabeth, you have come so far from the day you moved into LibertyTown. I am so amazed by how much you have grown. As I hung (all!) the pieces of yours on my walls I was reminded once again of your growing talent. I am so glad that others have discovered it too. :) You ROCK.

I couldn't help myself, I started whistling as soon as I saw "Bird Song". That's a first for me, art that inspires me to whistle. Well done.

Congrats on its sale as well as on the commission piece. You're rockin' it!

Elizabeth, thanks again for visiting me.

Now I'm "walking" through your blog and watching beautiful paintings, bird songs flying through the door and (quickly) realizing you're obviously a bird lover :)

So beautiful - everything!

Congratulations!

Andrew Finnie said...

Hello Elizabeth, you know every time I come to visit I want to drop everything and go to the studio. Your work is very inspiring.

Bye - I'm off to the studio.
Yes it's great when things walk out the door. But I always have a little cry - though I might not show it. I like to live with something before it goes.

Sometimes the break is traumatic
