30x4 acrylic/mixed media on canvas

"Storytelling" is the oldest of arts and saving personal stories in an entertaining way, is a wonderful gift to give the generations.  Just think you will be able to keep the stories alive as you revisit anchestry, traditions, childhood, travel, the family and children and grandchildren will actually see themselves in their own family saga! 


Seton can capture any story, event or occasion in a colorful, contemporary work of art with a twist of folk.


A visual experience is born, as you find a reference on a sign, a funny moment depicted, a happy accident and even a secret or two. Seton spins your story, with wit and whimsy as you laugh at crazy comical pets and cry at the misty-eyed brides, each time you revisit your personal "hidden-picture painting" and are transported back to those very special times and remember!


You just can't help but smile and your artwork smiles back!
