Angels in Love!

Look up in the night sky and you might see them! Dancing among the stars, this pair only have eye's for each other. I'm not sure I'm that happy with this one. I love the little girl but I wished I didn't touch her wings with a blue pencil. I couldn't get rid of it with out ripping her wings off and starting again! Hell I've been know to scarp nearly finished paintings back to the wood before it doesn't scare me to start again...mmmmm.
Thank you to everyone who's been leaving wonderful, blushingly lovely comments on my work.

I'll be winding down shortly as I'm off to a artist retreat for 2 months. It's a place I've wanted to go for years and years! I now have a wonderful opportunity to go, thanks to my brother Andrew who has been staying there for several months working on his music and independent documentary. He is off over seas so I'll be minding his place while he is gone.I'll take my camera and laptop, paints and lino and cutting tools, some of my mixed media stuff but alas no sewing machine:( I will take some knitting though and a book...any suggestions?
So before I go I will be having a give away so watch this space!!

Well you sure have been a busy girl of late, so a 2 month retreat will do you good. But no doubt you'll just work your butt off in other ways...the sewing machine will still be there when you get back.

BTW You might not be happy with your painting...but it sure looks like they are!

Warmest Hugs,
Sandi @ Bearly Sane

Angels in Love! How beautiful! I don't see anything wrong at all with the wings. You are one talented lady. Have a great retreat! I'm so jealous! Wish I could go away for even just 2 weeks! LOL Enjoy!
