Angels embody certain virtues: innocence, purity, beauty, protection, and serenity. This series of angel paintings also has a child-like quality to it. The simplistic strokes, the gentle outlines, especially the angel’s face, all exhibit a beautiful, youthful innocence. The wings of this series are unique. They are almost detached from the angel as a background element…is the painting of a girl or an angel? Are there people in our lives that are angels with unseen wings?
Unlike my other angel artwork, "Watching Over" is tightly cropped, focusing on the praying angel's face. On her hand is a beautiful bluebird who is looking at her. She has an expression of peace and serenity which is unmistakable. This is the angel I hope is near and watching over me.
The painting style and neutral palette is versatile enough to match with a rustic modern farmhouse or blend with classy, shabby chic décor. This innocent angel painting could adorn a child’s bedroom or accent a beautiful Christmas mantel. So many possibilities! I hope you enjoy this angel paintings series, and that it brings joy and beauty to your home.
"Watching Over" Giclée canvas print is made in the USA. Printed on poly-cotton canvas with archival-grade, fade-resistant inks. The canvas is stretch on finger-spliced, kiln-dried North American Pine.
