Are You My Mother?

Are You My Mother?, 11 x 14, acrylic/collage
 Elizabeth W. Seaver

The title is inspired by one of my favorite childhood books by P.D. Eastman, only my little bird gets it right on the first try.  No need to tour the neighborhood searching for the absent Mommy, just off to find herself a bite to eat.

And while we are on the subject of hatching and eggs and are two more new paintings on that theme.

Start Up Company, 4 x 4, acrylic/collage

Lady in Waiting, 8 x 10, collage/acrylic

I'll be moving my studio in the next week with all the attendant hoisting, lifting, packing, painting, nail-hole-filling and cleaning.  I will share photos when the dust has settled!

I am SO sorry I can't find the time to help you move. :( I love Charlottesville but it is an hour too far away.

Your art is very playful and whimsical! I love the bright colors and fun expressions on the birds faces.
