Buried Treasure 2010

I have been following Seth Apter's blog for a while and I don't have to tell you how much I admire his work. But what Seth does from time to time is bringing the collaborations and artists from around the world sign up and you get so many links to blogs and beautiful world of art. You know what amazes me most? Not the number of people signing up but the number of professional artist that join these collaborations. When the announcement for the Buried Treasures 2010 came up I was waiting for more links that I could follow. At the same time I got the comment from Seth for my latest project "Retrieved from ashes". Oh gosh, I couldn't believe that someone with his arty reputation would even bother visiting my blog.

Anyway, I must've got wings from his compliment and decided to join this collaboration without knowing what I'm letting myself into.



The first homework is to post one or more favourite posts that ever appeared on the blog. Gee, that's very tough call for someone who doesn't have years of experience not only in blogging but in art world all together. After long thinking (today is the D-day but lucky I live in Australia and even though our Thursday is just about to become Friday the rest of the world is just having morning tea or lunch). I decided to go with two posts:

"Eternity"...



... and "Art Vision"





What is coming now I'm not sure but Seth will let us know soon.
