Angels In Waiting.

November 11, 2009

I painted these women thinking they were going to be angels....then I thought, why not leave the wings off and call them angels in waiting....their faces are so serene and all of them look like they are thinking of someone.....For some reason I am painting in all pastels with very strong faces...not sure why. As I have said before these images just evolve on the canvas....while I am painting them. I was going to antique this but I loved the contrast of the white background and the sharp dark faces. Enjoy!

This painting is available on ebay right now starting at 29.95. Watch the auction to see what happens!
