Listen to you heart


Mixed media angel girl on 10 x 10 canvas. I thought the background was a little loud so I covered it with squares of tissue paper and gel medium. Then......it got too dull! ha
I ended up adding a rich purple glaze to the edges and now it's more of what I wanted. ?? I think. The hardest part of this process is knowing when to quit :)

Darla, she is really beautiful, I love her face and eyes! The background looks magic, so whatever it was you did to it, it worked!

Take care, Val

Thank you Renee, Vania, Micki & Julie-Ann! Such kind words that means so much to me♥

Renee, I didn't realize you are in Winnipeg! We're really not too far apart. I'm just south of Grand Forks, ND and actually took an oil painting class (Bob Ross style) in Winnipeg a few years ago.

So blessed! said...

I can't remember if I have commented on your art work before, so just in case... I love your work. I have actually done an affirmation angel in my art class I took last summer too. Look a few posts back on my blog and see what you think. I'm just learning. It is so fun!
