I left a lot of space in this image. I hope it adds to the mood and meaning in this subject, as the composition draws your eye to the right and to follow the angel wherever she may be leading. The beach and ocean is symbolic of the path to other shores of the mind and soul.

I hope you like it :)

Thanks to `Elandria for the reference that I used when painting the figure.

I like how you made the wings large enough to actually take her weight. :)

I discovered this picture when I lost my feline soul mate, he had a beautiful soft nature and lovely aura surrounding him, so where I have his ashes I have a porcelain cup with this image next to him, so to me she symbolises his guardian angel holding the key into the afterlife. I'm a highly sensitive person so every time I see this image it reminds me that my boy is ok and I feel a sense of peace and calm come over me. This picture means more to me than Anne could realise. Thank you Anne.

It's the wings! You captured the sense of wing scale and detail perfectly here. The ray of sunshine works so well to highlight the message and symbolism. Light with no sense of darkness in this painting.

I cannot stress enough how well this image would look like painted on a wall of a Catholic school or poster or ceiling of a church. Just the mixture of tones and the iconic image of the angel gives a sense of renewed hope and stress relief when looked upon. I really like how you mist the background, providing the sense that this angel came to help because it is not a clear bright sunny blue-sky day. And with her presence, the sun shines anew with one ray and beacon of light and hope.

Again, would be nice to see this angel as a 3D figure. Your wings are just so captivating to look at.
