Angels Here

This  is  the  time  of  the  year  when  I  forget  about  Halloween  and  even  Thanksgiving,  and  start  thinking  about  Christmas--no  I'm  not  really  one  of  those  early  bird people  that  start  getting  ready  for  the  holiday  in  the  beginning  of  the  year--just  the  opposite  actually.   But..my  next  show  in  3  weeks  is  for  the  all  of  those  people  who  do  think  like  that--Christmas  in  the  Woods  in  Columbiana,  Ohio  (my  favorite  show!) 
 
Last  year  I  was  thinking  snowmen--but  this  year--I'm  thinking  angels.   So  the  first  thing  I  did  was  get  out  a  piece  of  watercolor  paper  and  started  sketching--
 
 
 
...next--I  got  out  my  favorite  form  of  watercolor--my  neocolor  crayons  and  some  chalk  pastels  and  gave  her  some  color--
 
 
 
....AND  then...I  put  her  on  an  11 x 14  gallery  canvas  and  surrounded  her in  my  new-found  papers  by  Prima  ("Fairy  Rhymes")--
 
 
 
I  enjoyed  doing  this  so  much....that  I  did  it  again....
 
 
 
 
 
I  also  made  my  "guardian  angel"
 
 
and  last  but  not  least--what  else  do  I  finish  my  blog  posts  with--but  my  latest  box!
 
 
...but  I  still  have  angels  on  my  mind....

Love your angels (I am an angel fan too), especially the "dream angel". She is beautifully serene and her hair is gorgeous!.

Diane! Oh; I've missed you and your art! Thanks for visiting my new Blog. I have felt so disconnected with those that have inspired me - you are among them. I've added your Blog to my new one on the side bar so I can keep connected with you.

I ADORE your angels! I'm high on angels as they symbolize, to me, the ones that are taking care of my husband, now, in heaven.

I would, honestly, be interested in purchasing your DREAM angel if you can release her when your show is over.

Please let me know. (Artbeliever@gmail.com)

Thanks SO much - I'm glad we can stay in touch.

Love, Marilyn
