Angel in the Snow, acrylic on deep wrapped canvas, 4" x 12", private collection.
This puts me in mind of my illustration days--has a children's book feel to it.
The finished piece surprised me--guess they all do in a way. But this one definitely developed with a life of its own all along, and emerged very different from the initial picture in my mind. Maybe because I was painting it in front of an intermittent audience, and wasn't thinking about each step.
