Artist profile: Helena Nelson-Reed – Miscellaneous

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

These last three paintings by Helena Nelson-Reed don’t fit in any other categories that I’d made up, but they are nonetheless worth looking at!
Winter Sleep
Look, look, there’s a woman made out of stones and tree roots. How cool is that? I see winter as a period to rest, recuperate, and prepare for the activity of spring; this painting captures that concept really well – the stillness and the potential of winter. Plus, it’s all curvy and has interesting color usage. This painting can be viewed on Ms. Nelson-Reed’s Miscellaneous page.
Raven Mother
This painting is viewable on her Crone Wisdom page. I like it because it is of an old woman – not the usual subject of artworks (although I don’t see why not) – and the contrast between the light and dark parts of the painting. The violets, blues, and greens in the darker part are soft and circular… kind of like a womb. Maybe I’m reading too much into it – but maybe not, since Helena Nelson-Reed has a background in psychology, and psychologists love that stuff (haha).
The Hollow Hills
I’m not sure what the title means, but you can view it here on her Faerie Realm and Magic page. When I look at this, I’m just like “Wow”. All those tiny curly and wavy details.

Thanks for journeying with me through some of Helena Nelson-Reed’s beautiful, awe-inspiring artworks!
