Finishing up a few paintings

Actually the two I posted last week. I’ll post them as the before and after just for kicks.

I messed with this one and wound up cutting it out and mounting it on another piece of black paper. It’s pretty wobbly. Even though I weigh these paintings down as I go this one has fabric and heavy painting on it.

The one I showed you last week and how it looks now. I spent a lot of time painting this weekend as well as starting to get my small yard cleaned up. As I’ve mentioned we have a beautiful copper beech tree and I spend many happy hours under it.

Have a good week! Nina

    The one at the top looks like a book, then a person’s knowledge/world/* growing out of the book. Very very cool-looking, Nina. A copper beech tree sounds lovely!

    Both paintings are very nice, Nina. I like the eyes in the books. The mouth is quite creepy for me. How nice to have a beech tree.

    These are so striking! I love your use of colour! The top painting makes me think of the awakening of a book worm 🙂

    I really like the way you’ve turned the top one into a mask. Makes me want to get back to aome masks myself. (K)

    Ahhh. Refreshing sight to my eyes! I also see a book. An image of the place where I spend my favorite times, inside the pages. As for your copper beech, there is a pretty new elementary school here named for this tree, a magnificent specimen that was on the grounds when they built the school – it was a local landmark standing in an empty field for as long as I can remember and now it is a school yard tree (not on the playground, where it can get hurt, it is out front). I imagine you with such a tree, you are very lucky.

    Will you indulge us with a picture of your copper beech tree? I like the face I see in the first painting.
