Rainy Day Angel, palette knife painting
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
#5 in the blue series. I used a composition of split compliments. Blue-green, blue-violet, orange, black and white. Orange is a true compliment to blue, so by using the hues on each side of blue I have split the compliment. I could have done it the other way: with Blue and Yellow-Orange or Red-Orange.
This is a palette knife painting, which gives it that almost abstract look, which I love for angels.
When we are down we can be sure God is still with us. His messengers are all around. We can find comfort even when times are tough.
