I do believe and I feel it from my own personal experiences that we have nothing if we don’t have hope.  Without hope, there’s a kind of numbness to my soul, hope is the opposite………uplifting and comforting.

“Hope” is my fifth angel in the “Twelve Days of Angels”, she’s a sweet happy lil angel. Original oil painting on ampersand panel, prints and Christmas cards are available of “Hope”.

The second angel in my “Twelve Days of Angels” is “Gabriel”. Some of my followers suggested that I paint a boy angel, and “Gabriel” was my first!  Inspiration came from a beautiful little boy’s photo of a friend on Facebook. Another follower suggested I name this angel “Gabriel”.  I just love my followers, you all are so helpful!


In the bible, Gabriel appears to the virgin Mary foretelling the birth of Jesus.

Join me as I share my angel paintings and thoughts for the next twelve days. “The Twelve Days of Angels” will contain some of my thoughts while painting.

“Believe” is the first angel I painted for this series.  I always paint a special series each Christmas for a small unique gift shop in Elizabethtown named Smellie Bloomers. All angels are created in oil and will be revealed at Smellie Bloomers Christmas Open House on November 11, 2012 from 2:00-6:00pm. Angel prints, cards an original paintings will be available.

My  goal as I painted “Believe” was to paint minimal strokes, keeping the composition loose and fresh as I express the joy of my own personal belief that there are angels among us.
