Another Step For The Angel Miniature ACEO

Creeping along on this newest little painting (ACEO 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches). Because I want the texture to be very smooth on this little angel, just like she would appear as a sculpture, I am working mainly in stipple (tiny dots) Its a very, very slow process but well worth it I think. Since I am here in my home town caring for my mom right now, my thoughts are mostly on these final pages in moms life. Today especially, I am feeling the inevitability of her passing and it kind of has my heart in my throat. I think that is some of the feeling behind this new painting, a bit sad, but tender and beautiful too.

Mom is napping quietly as the afternoon sunlight filters through her bedroom curtains.

Melody, this little painting is so poignant at this time. I am sure your mom has been like an angel to you throughout your life. I know mine has and my heart aches for you. I love angels in general and this is shaping up to be so lovely. I look forward to seeing it completed. Lots of time consuming work on this one. I hope it brings you comfort.
Lots of hugs,

Thanks Deb. My mom really has been an angel to me, and solid as a rock too. Letting that anchor go is the hardest part.
