Angels on my mind…

4 Comments


For quite some time now, I’ve had angels on my mind… even from before I went on holiday in July.

Early July I received an question from Janet to make and paint a set of 3 Traveler’s Notebooks using a gorgeous image of an Angel standing in water under a stormy sky.

It took me some time to get myself to work on it…obviously there were the standard set-backs…like my camera dying on me and the repair man taking his time…but then there was also some definite procrastination involved, due to fear of not doing it justice….especially since I felt it had a deeper significance to Janet.

Now I love drawing and painting angels, but drawing and painting on a canvas is something entirely different to drawing and painting on leather. The leather has to be wet when painting and that makes it very susceptible to dents and impressions…

However, I got past my fear, got up the nerve and started the painting and now here they are…

3 lovely angels, flying in the face of stormy weathers, coming through heavy waters and emerging as a figure of beauty on the other side.

and a Regular size Traveler’s Notebook

I gave Janet the pictures of the proces to making these Traveler’s Notebooks and she wrote 2 blogposts about them (here and here), so I think I will just refer you to her blog for the additional images and I will leave you with this funny picture of me juggling my brushes while working on a painting =)… yes I know I should take better care of my brushes…
