Angel Bride and A Weekend Getaway

"Angel Bride"
mixed media on 8x10 canvas board

I wanted to share my latest painting with you before I head out for the weekend. I used my angel sketch and adhered her to the layers of collage, glaze, and stamping that embellish this canvas board. I used crayon for the flowers and like that it is the only color on her. I initially wasn't crazy about the pink I chose but pink to me symbolizes love so I thought it was appropriate! She will be making her way to my etsy shop soon!

This morning hubby and I are heading to Newport, RI for the weekend! It was a gift from him for Valentine's Day. Although I have been there numerous times I never tire of it! We will be staying at a beach cottage right and I don't even care how cold it will be! Just to be near the ocean calms me and makes me happy!

I won't be blogging much but you know that I will have my camera with me so there will be photos to share upon my return!! Have a lovely weekend!! xo

  1. Angel Bride is glorious! It's a great job and it must be that you are feeling like a bride yourself, going away for the weekend. :) Job well done. Have a great time.

  2. She is beautiful. She would have made a wonderful card to include with my gift to my great niece for her wedding that was on Monday.

  6. She's just perfect with that the hint of color!
    Enjoy your weekend. We went to Newport a few years ago and really enjoyed it--loved the tour of the mansions, or summer homes, as they referred to them :)
