Two Paintings For Today! Frida and Angel Icon

I have two paintings to share today. The first one is another in my on-going series of Frida Kahlo studies. Frida is seated in a green dress before rich scarlet draperies weighing an apple in each hand.

My second painting is a large Angel Icon painted in acrylics and liquid gold leaf on a deeply textured wooden cross. At the top of the cross I've placed a smaller clay cross embellished with a sparkling Swarovski Rhinestone. Although it may be difficult to see on your screen, the angel is painted against a deeply glowing liquid gold leaf background. It is truly a dramatic and unique piece of spiritual wall art.
