Transition

Rooftop Gardens, mixed media, 16 x 20

High Road, acrylic, 16 x 20
Elizabeth W. Seaver

Both of these represent where the train went off the track, so to speak, in my quest to push the limited palette!  Color crept in.  In these two paintings I added quinacridone red, phthalo blue red shade, and cobalt blue to the hansa yellow, quinacridone gold, dioxazine purple, white and black that I had been using.  And, there I stayed for the next set of works I completed.  In fact, I do not think I am done yet with this combination.


I just finished a week of summer camp in my studio.  Let me tell you, we (my son, Matt, and Betsy Glassie, another artist at LibertyTown and I) took them on a mixed media journey.  I think we wore them out!  I know they did the same to me--but it was great fun with great kids. We're doing it again this week with a different group of campers.

I'm ready, now that I've got my camp legs under me!

I'm glad camp was a success! Matt is DEFINITELY a good sport! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the roof top gardens. I had seen the painting in the quick looksy on Saturday but now that I know the title I had a good giggle. Perfect.
