Just a quick Hello!
This will be very short as it is much later than I usually allow myself to stay up! Once again I started working on a drawing and completely forgot about the time.
Anyway, I was talking with a friend a few days ago -- telling her about the icons I am drawing -- and she spoke up and said: "do you have any angels?"
Well, I had to say no since the closest thing I have to angels is this drawing of two little girls playing the part of angels in a Christmas pageant!
The friend then went on to say that if I ever drew any angels, she would really be interested in seeing them as she "collects" angels.
Well, that started me thinking about possibilities and within a few hours, I had settled on a drawing and was working away.
I have been working on the following drawing every chance I have had for the past few days and finally reached the first draft stage tonight. I couldn't wait to show it to you even though I can barely stay awake. So, here it is:
As always, comments, criticisms and suggestions would all be welcome.
Now I am off to bed and as I have done for years, I will say the following before falling asleep:
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God's love commits me here,
Ever this night be at my side,
To light, to guard, to rule, to guide.
