Artist profile: Helena Nelson-Reed – Celestial

Every month, I profile an artist who inspires my own art,
in several segments.

 
There are several of Helena Nelson-Reed’s paintings that deal with goddesses and angels. Here are three that I thought were just beautiful.
hnr_amaterasu
Amaterasu
You would expect a painting of the Japanese sun goddess to have lots of warm oranges, yellows, white, and maybe red. The lack of these colors (except in short bursts) makes me think Nelson-Reed is portraying Amaterasu inside the cave where she hid from her jerkface brother… or maybe not.

lotus angel (real title unknown)
She’s pretty! I’m not even sure if she has wings – I see some feathers, though.
hnr_angelsun
sun angel (real title unknown)
Now here are some wings! This painting is too cool. So sweeping and vibrant and big-feeling.
