All Angels come to us disguised....

I love this quote from Michelangelo; " I saw the angel in the marble until I set him free."

While painting this angel, I didn't realize how much I would need my own physical angels in the weeks to come.  An oil painting on canvas through an on line class.
This painting will remain in my studio to remind me of the angels that God sent my way during a very trying and frightening time. 
The process of this painting was unique and new to me.  It taught me to go out of my comfort zone.  It taught me to keep trying even when the difficulties of the painting caused frustration. It taught me to keep trying and going back over the areas that seemed hard.  Leaving it for a while and coming back to it with new eyes and a new perspective. 

My angel painting is a reminder to trust, seek and be thankful even in the toughest circumstances.  

There will be an end to this difficulty and in the mean time I will embrace the angels that God sends my way.
