Donation item complete!

I finished the 12 x 12 angel piece. You probably won't notice much difference but I glazed over the halos with gold to tone them down a bit. I also did some shading and added stamped names to each angel in gold as well.

THEN.........I decided to make myself a BIG ONE! I started a 24 x 24 canvas with the same design :)

Excuse the sloppy mess surrounding this! I'm not an organized painter by any means :)

I'm heading out to Grand Forks today to do a little grocery shopping, get a manicure and a stop to see my good friends at 'Michaels'.

Hope you're all enjoying a wonderful Sunday. The temps are rising here today so it's wonderful!
Who knew temps in the 20's would feel so balmy?!

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

This is wonderful, how did you get the stamps to look so "un-stamplike"? They look so subtle, I really like it!
As for the weather, we're VERY excited to be above freezing for the day- is it Spring yet?

Serena said...

WOW...it's eye-catchingly beautiful, Darla! Your large version will be just as gorgeous, if not better, I'm sure.
