Angel Painting (with another key!)

"Infinite Possibilities" Oil on 11x14 canvas. 

Well I put the cats painting aside in order to finish this Angel one on a deadline for a contest.  Click on the link & you can see all the entrants... interesting to view all the different styles and approaches to the theme of Angels.  It was fun to enter, and also working an oil painting under a deadline, I learned a lot. When creating a painting to enter a contest, I want to retain boldness and strength, and have complete faith in my own vision.

So now it's back to the Cats painting, which I'll post here soon.

Again, I love it. Especially the keyhole...seek and you shall find. I hope you and Eve can split the winnings!

Theresa Bayer said...

Thanks Waverly! It tickled me to see that Eve had also selected a painting you'd modeled for.

Laura Grimes said...

I think you find genuine inspiration in painting Waverly. Some models jumpstart the artist's creativity. I am really liking these paintings.

Heather said...

Beautiful colors on this one. There is something really pleasing and intriquing about it. Her expression is both inviting and mysterious.

About Bobbi... said...

I'm visualizing a big BLUE ribbon on that one!

Thanks Laura, Heather and Bobbi! I think there are definitely some models that an artist develops a rapport with. And then I'm sure you've seen those amazing times when everyone in painting or drawing studio does something wonderful, because of the model that day.

I love your illustrations. The patterns in the composition and especially on the wings are about the coolest thing I've seen in a long time.
