I finally completed this Angel Portrait. I started this piece about 25 years ago. It is a portrait of my daughter Sara when she was about 7 or 8 years old. It has lived in the studio and in my office for years at the 75% completed stage. When Sara had her daughter I decided that it needed to be 100% completed and live with them. I did the final clean up, sanding and detail work. The wood is basswood and I decided to just use a wax finish so as to not darken the wood. There is a small amount of oil pencil color added and very thin lines of gold paint underneath each wing feather to give the wings a feeling of lightness.
