Icy Spirit Awakens ~ This is 5x7 inches, acrylics on watercolor paper. I used some gold interference and some glitter dust for a sparkly spot under the moon.


Metamorphosis ~ This little 6x6 inch stretched canvas has gone though so many changes, I now have the perfect title for it. I gessoed over one I didn't like, painted another, and then painted another over that one...then changed it yet again! Well this is the final version and there's about 3 paintings underneath this one. :p
Which reminds me, one of my all-time favorite short stories is 'The Metamorphosis' by author Franz Kafka. Very eerie and a great read!

Lynnette - I'm such a fan of your abstracts! Icy Spirit seems like the perfect prelude to winter...

Metamorphosis by Kafka is one of my favorites too. I should pull it out this winter break.

Kim said...

These are great, Lynette! Wow...you know how I love the tree paintings!

There is an award for you at my blog!

Love your moons, Lynette!

These are both great, and I like the idea of some art historian -- 200 years from now -- x-raying your little painting and seeing all the other images beneath.

Oh, and as for Kafka -- I like my men with a pinch of insanity mixed in, but I hate when they turn into cockroaches!

Lynette said...

Thank you fenny, yep it could be a funny hanging moon! :)
Heeyy Babs, ha, there is about 3 or 4 paintings underneath that one and I finally had to call it finished! Thanks for the nice words!

Hey JB, thank you too and LOL I was about ready to give up on that painting. I hope you and yours had a lovely TG Day too! We got so stuffed that day and now it's time to go on a diet LOL.

Your Icy Spirit Awakens reminds me of the winter sky last night--the moon accompanied by Venus and Jupiter.

And your other painting morphed beautifully. Great circling energy.
