Hi Nora. SO happy to see more of your art! Again always a pleasing balance and great use of colour. There is also a sadness and slightly uncanny air about your work which endlessly draws in the viewer; trying to distinguish the source of unsettlement among such ostensibly bright and carefully balanced images.

My preference is for the pictures which tell a story (Judgement is my favourite here) and I am put in mind of Paula Rego. Her work also tells stories and has a similar atmosphere about it (though possibly sadder).

I love your work!

Best wishes,
Bearfriend xx

I just love your work, Nora. It is sort of child like and naive. My favourites are......childhood ( a wonderful childlike joy in it.)....... Judgement (much more serious with a feeling almost tinged with fear)........ summer flowers (again a happy childish kind of thing....... memories of ideal summers etc.)

I love them all really. So simple but so effective! Well done!

Nuts in May

Awesome, totally wonder art.

When are you having a showing? Show some to the art galleries or email them some pictures.

Your art is hot!

I like them all but Judgment was scary!

Every piece is stunning, I had no idea you were an artist....

I'm amazed by the color and energy.

I like what you are doing and understand how hard art is to phtograph and display and that something is lost in tone and colou...you are letting your seld frree more so than the mandalas....thank you fo rsharing.

My very best...keep it up.

These are absolutely fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing. So beautifully vivid and ALIVE, I just love them (but think 'judgement' is my fave).

Keep going! Don't you stop now!!

I am sorry it has taken me so long to comment on your collages and paintings. Although I find them to have underlying messages that are not pure sunshine they themselves seem to radiate color and positivity. Of course I like the transparency that you achieved in Call down the Gods. I admire your ability to freely create, think and express yourself in these works. I often find this process difficult.

I humbly thank you for your advice on my collage. I decided that your advice was the correct one for me.

The childhood collage makes for a lovely image.

There's something about The Little Prince that sets my mind off on a story hunt. I sit here and think of tales of whim and fancy that would be told around a campfire with a group of my closest friends. I love this. :)

Grit said...

they are fantastic! i liked childhood, of course. it is perfect. i found myself creating lots of stories about that, so the colours and images and shapes are speaking to me. you must continue creating art; it deserves a public exhibition.

Tony, you're probably thinking of the boo by that name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It is very famous and very readable around a campfire.

Sorry - I'm a little behind on my blog reading. But Nora, once again such wonderful art! My favourites are Childhood and Field of Flowers. Thank you for showing them to us!

Word verification: presenes. That's almost "presense". And these collages are very, very present!
