Angel

This is an oil I did many moons ago. About 18x24. It started as just a landscape and it sure needed something: so...... the Angel emerged.

Cheers, Derek

Re: Angel

Perhaps everyone is busy painting?
It is a lovely piece, Derek. The angel is nicely camouflaged in the wood.

Re: Angel

Hey, There you are folks. Thanks Deapea: I added the angel about a week after I started this painting.

There you go Jon, Deapea did not know about this forum either.

Thanks Jon, very much. Derek

Re: Angel

Hi Derek, I love this painting, I do remember it. Your work is all in my opinion inspirational..it always offers peace and tranquility, superbly done and gives
creation a standing ovation...how much more inspirational can something get.
I really do hope you will post again, I need to be more active here myself.. it's a wonderful group.

Hugs,
Elaine

Theres acutally a lot going on in different parts of the forum. I just branched out myself.

About your piece
To me is shows how there is always the presence of "God". I use that term loosely to mean the ever expansive consciousness present in everything always. You've made a piece where this presence doesn't have to be as clear as a slap in the face or as faint as a the shadow from a full moon. There is a balance where connecting with that presence can just be felt by taking a walk through nature.
I feel like I've been to that exact spot. Both physically and spiritually.
Nice job. Not an easy task. Keep up the good work.

Re: Angel

I forget to come here too...I visit garden forums, my own blogs, other blogs...etc, etc, etc...you all will know that drill too most likely. Beautiful background and angel. I especially like the transluscent effect you captured.

Re: Angel

Derek,
I love all your works, and the way you combine and harmonize your colors. The presence of the angel does enhances the mood of your landscape. Amazing!

Re: Angel

Just stopped in here from the Pastel side and saw this. Very nice. I decided to see what else is out there.
