Maura Holden

I’ve been marveling at this painting by Maureen Holden.

Cuteness Mania:

I love this multi-limbed, medusa-like amazon, spawning cuteness from the twisited tree limbs on her head, terrorizing onlookers (is she offering them a seat on that Victorian sofa beneath her?). I enjoy the fact that just as my brain tries to assemble a cohesive meaning in the painting, I fixate on another series of details and it all collapses.

    Not heard of Maura Holden before but will check your link out. I like what I see here and sure it looks even better in person.

    Have to say I like the style and subject matter, very bizzare.
