This angel painting was created for my sister, Kathleen. She asked if maybe I had a painting sitting around she could put up in the office at her new job. Since I give the pieces away, I didn’t have one on a back shelf, but I offered to make one for her.
Her next question: could I do an angel painting of her dog, Stella? Hmm. I suggested I could try including Stella, but wanted to incorporate a guide as well.
I used this picture of Stella after a rainy hike for inspiration.
The simplest, most basic mantra “Love One Another,” is a good reminder to everyone these days.
As usual, it is a mixed media piece with collage, paint, rubber stamping and oil pastels.
I love all the layers and texture.
I’m also really pleased how the angel wings create the look of a wing on Stella.
I think I would be comforted if a guide or angel made herself known to me and she was carrying a puppy.
Coming soon: a blue haired angel. Or maybe she’s a mermaid…
Thanks for the visit!
Here’s a bonus Stella picture, from her puppyhood.
