52 pickup and I get to meet Seth!

Today I had an oasis day - no thinking about work or study (both nuts at the moment - 6 hour teleconference anyone?) - and instead spent the day at a workshop with the wonderful Seth Apter. Seth is an immensely talented mixed media artist: we 'met' two years ago when he asked me to make a piece for his next book. The Mixed Media Artist was duly published in October last year and included my piece Siliqua Lucti.

So I was really happy when I saw that Seth was going to come to Australia and give classes as part of the Art is You mixed media roadshow. I did Seth's 52 pickup class and it was so much fun. we had to turn up with a deck of playing cards, painted with black gesso on both sides.
Seth taught us how to do all sorts of magic with paint and gesso - here's what mine looked like after a couple of hours of playing.

 I edged mine with gold ink.

It was great to meet at last - Seth is a gem. If you get the chance to have a class with him, grab it!

Happy to have met you Felicity -- first online and now in person. What luck for me to have found your blog. I really enjoyed the day and glad you had some respite from your busy stretch of time. Hope to see you in NYC or back in Australia again soon!
