Angel Paintings

In the past I've mentioned my angel series...the series crops up every once in a while. I know this will sound very new age? holistic? but the angels come, when they come. I usually work on traditional folk art paintings with an occasional plein air here and there. The angels come into my dreams. When they start coming in nightly, I get the essence on canvas, in my own style of course. They are kind of a visual metaphor for me.  I know they may disappear again or they may stay a while but until then, I keep painting them. This is the part that I don't really know how to are the messages determined? Every angel has a message and I don't know it until I come to just about the end, and sometimes even then they can sit in my studio for days as I wait for the message. When I'm done with these mixed media angles, they get at least five coats of sealant. When I am done listening to them and they need to go to another owner, they will show up on ETSY and my website.

Two finished and one in the planning stage.
