Imperfection


Imperfection is a signature of our humanness. Yet the less we dwell on our benign imperfections, the more space we have for inner contemplation.
In my painting, I have two red-bellied woodpeckers, with their almost-perfect, mesmerizing black and white wing design!
Have a great week! : )

What a lovely Madonna of the birds!

I agree, a strong piece. There is something strange and surprising about it: the bare tree, the woodpeckers and the tired and mysterious looking lady.

Good piece!

Interesting use of color and I'm kind of intrigued how all of them are looking in different directions. Kind of a statement that we're all together and all separate at the same time.

Wonderful play of colours in her hands and face, subtle in contrast to the birds' wing patterns. Lovely painting.

Your portraits are amazing Nicola. I particularly like the way you've included the birds. Beautiful.
