On Watch

On Watch, acrylic on masonite, 12 x 12
Elizabeth W. Seaver

Lots of good news on the art front in the last few days.  I'll tell more later.  For now, here is a new piece.

Mom and Sis coming for Thanksgiving--a reason to give thanks, for sure!

(But what happened to October?)

Quail, 6 x 6, acrylic on panel

Going to the dentist this morning.  Thought this was an appropriate title.

Black Swan

Black Swan, 6 x 6, acrylic on masonite
Elizabeth W. Seaver

I found these cool panels on a jaunt through Charlottesville and have been putting a series of playful paintings on them.  I have a HUGE canvas that I must adorn for a really big painting show in December at LibertyTown.  I am trying all kinds of things out on smaller surfaces first.  

No telling where I will end up--and there's the fun, friends and neighbors!

Lime Birds

Honestly! 5 x 5, collage, pen, colored pencil,
Elizabeth W. Seaver

Don't you wish you knew what they were saying?  Looking in from the outside, we can only guess.  Perhaps she is just demonstrating the latest birdie dance step.  It must come with a good story, though, because her friend is listening with great anticipation.

Isn't that the best, when a friend has a good yarn to spin about date night, a trip or a funny misadventure?  The teller settles in to tell, and the listener prepares herself to be royally entertained.  And it's even more fun when the meeting is by chance and long-awaited.

I can think of a few friends with whom I need to sit and share a few stories.  We live too far away to meet in the meadow, but we can talk on the phone.    It has been way too long.

Choir Practice

Choir Practice, pen, collage, colored pencil, 5 x 5
Elizabeth W. Seaver

Obviously this is an impromptu sing-a-long in the meadow, not the usual Wednesday night workout at the church-house.  But, you've got to sing when the Spirit says sing as the old spiritual says.  And when two or three are gathered together, let's hope you have harmony!
