Weekly Challenge at Inspiration Avenue- "Angels"

The Inspiration Avenue challenge this week set by the mega talented Tammy of Art and Inspirations was "Angels" - I posted my WIP yesterday for Paint Party Friday and then got to work so I could have it finished for next week's auction.  And I'm REALLY happy to say that I'm almost done!  I just need to finish the leaves, tighten up the Impatiens and do a little touch up on her face.  I'm pretty happy with her and hopefully, someone else will be too- enough to bid on her ;)

Be sure to check ALL the submissions at Inspiration Avenue- I pretty sure it will be a bit like a sneak peek for other auction items.
Have a blessed day!
Stephanie

This is divine! You know I love anything garden-related, and your paintings are always wonderful! I love the simplicity of the green, gray, and white. A great choice for the auction! Happy Easter!!

wow - loved reading your story/journey into art and teaching via your family - how inspiring. I love teaching too (and now run the experimental art e-courses online designed particularly for people that may not be able to get childcare or go to regular classes) it's my real passion and yet I too enjoy teaching face to face. Am doing my art MA at the moment whilst fitting it all around kids! It's great to hear others stories and well done to you. Great work. Am off to look at more :)

I'm SO late getting here, especially after you wished me happy birthday so many times. This is one incredibly gorgeous piece, and I know someone is going to want your angel. I'm sure it will be a big winner at the auction.
