I'm thrilled and honored to be a part of Seth Apter's new book, The Pulse of Mixed Media, Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed.
(The Banner above was created and affixed to my paintings by the incredible artist- Michelle Ward.)
It's day 8 of the book's theatrical reveal -
To tell my story of its magical, magnetic, and dynamic appeal.
Containing heartfelt words, deep emotions and insightful thoughts- With gorgeous original paintings and artwork so excitedly sought. It’s an artistic explosion- a collaboration of fun and finesse - It's now time to celebrate The Pulse of Mixed Media'sgrand success!!
As a contributor, I was asked to create a self portrait Here's a
glimpse of my work titled "Essence of My Smile"!
Below is sneak peek of "Creating Wonder from Within", another mixed media artwork created for the book - filled with a tapestry of hidden and subtle secret meanings.
It may be a surprise to some, but Seth and I go back a long way. In fact, I'm tremendously excited to announce that a special art and poetry collaborative project of ours titled "The Gift" will be published this spring in the inaugural edition of a new quarterly Art Magazine FEATURING, founded by the amazing Marit Barentsen.
One lucky winner will be able to say they are the very proud owner of
Elemental VII-a Seth Apter original work.
In Seth's own words, "It is a 'one-of-a-kind'.. created on cold press watercolor paper, handmade in Montreal at the Papeterie Saint Armand." Measuring 10" x 7 1/2", it's one of the largest pieces sold in his Etsy shop and can be seen below! This fabulous piece was originally highlighted and on exhibition at the Virtual TART site, an art website organized by artist Dale Copeland and based in New Zealand.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this posting- and at the end of our 31/31 March book party, I will choose one lucky winner at random. Please make sure that I will be able to identify who you are so I can make contact and send you this precious gift!
Seth: Now that I'm giving away one of your stunning pieces of artwork- I hope you will answer the following question for your readers: You've indicated that your meeting with Patricia Larsen was the cataclysmic event that started your life to become the artist and author that you are today. Looking back to that time, do you think you'd have entered the field of art if you hadn't seen her work and visited her gallery? If so, what other event or person do you think would have taken you into the world of art? And, if your answer is no, do you think that there would have been another passion that you'd be engaged in now other than art.... Can you also please tell us what triggered you to create your infamous The Altered Page blog? And for those reading this post, I would love to hear what inspired you to create your website or blog.
In conjunction with the book's release, Seth has scheduled events across the country. I am so excited to be part of the New York City book release on March 31, 2012 from 10:00AM- 12:00 Noon at the Ink Pad along with other contributing artists including Michelle Ward, Leslie Marsh, Karen Cole,Roxanne Evans Stout and Julie Prichard!
