I bought a box of gouaches and they sat on my shelf for a few months. I thought IŽd paint something with them but never had the time.
Then a family member got seriously ill. I got this sudden need to paint an angel and this painting, "Surrender" was the result.
This painting represents the moment when you realize there are things that are out of your control, that sometimes you have to give in and trust that youŽll be given the strength to meet whatever comes.

Hi Leena,
This is beautifully rendered (the details in the hair, dress and wings..beautiful). A lovely 'traditional' style with gentle sentiment.
Thanks for sharing this.

Leena, this is a beautiful painting and a beautiful testament to what art brings to our lives, a special gift that lets us express and create as a way to cope with all the things life can throw at us. Creating Art is very healing and very healthy and nourishing for our souls.
