"Angel Be Mine"

"Angel Be Mine," 1" x 13/16", egg tempera on vellum, $30 + free shipping (see 3/21/09 sale)

Here are the other two hearts I painted.  "Love You" and "Angel Be Mine" are each painted "in the spirit of miniature," which is a rule applied when something, such as a candy heart, is too small to begin with to portray at 1/6th scale.

Note:  I'm working on my portrait of Aretha and will be posting my progress late tonight, along with a photo and some information in answer to someone's question about the brushes I use for miniature painting.  Meanwhile, take a look at my latest drawing recently posted on my other blog, Grander Joy of Spirit in Portraiture.

I don't know how you keep up with more than one blog! Your hearts are precious, and the portrait drawing is lovely! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day.

Mona this is another cute painting! I like that you gave a blue background to this one while the other one has pink. What is the size of this painting? They go together perfectly.

Thanks Deb and Akiko.

Would you believe it, I actually had the size posted, but in my effort to post the art (this art was hard to scan accurately) I must have erased it, so I'll re-label it, now. Thanks for flagging it for me Akiko.
