I have always loved angels and cherubs. I have an extensive collection, too! So it would be only natural for me to use them in the many things I do.
These sweeties are painted with acrylics on a 4" x6" canvas board. I finished it with a clear gloss coat for protection and to bring out the warmth and richness of the colors.

This is painted on bristol board with acrylics. It has a protective clear gloss that brings out the colors when you see it in person.
He is originally titled "Rockin' Around the Chtistmas Tree".

I found this box some time ago at a thrift shop and did not know what to do with it until now. The box was already the blue color. As I was going through some paintings of mine, I came across this one. It matched perfectly, the painting fit exactly on top and the color blue I used couldn't have gone with the box color any better. So, I glued the painting to the top of the box and I love it! The lid opens up and there is also a drawer for more storage. I think it will be wonderful to use for my cash register at art shows. What do ya think??
The painting is acrylic with collage, scraps of used wrapping paper (that I save) make up the flowers and the letters in the saying are cut out and applied individually. It was finished with a clear protective gloss. Now, I think I need to sculpt a cool handle!
