New Series

What Lies Beneath, mixed media, 16 x 20
Elizabeth W. Seaver


This is the first painting I began in a new series exploring a mixed media approach to the painting process with a limited palette.  As to the subject matter:  I've been thinking a great deal about the interdependence of all things, living and non-living, all intertwined with the idea of community and how important that is.  Recent earthquakes, marching development, hatred and revenge, and extreme weather have all played a part in the images I have been creating. 

I have completed eight paintings so far.  You can see them all here

Blessings on you all.  I hope the day is as beautiful where you are as it is where I am.

While I have to admit that I miss the birds, I do like this new side of your art, Elizabeth. It's always wonderful to try different types of expression.

And, though your intro seemed somewhat dreary- understandable considering the chaos of the current times- your pieces are not at all dreary. Great work!
