New Original Paintings - "Angel at Glastonbury Abbey" and "Faces of Faery 180"




I recently had an art show in Glastonbury, England (Avalon!) and returned very inspired! One place I visited (twice!) was the ruin of Glastonbury Abbey - the abbey has been rebuilt and destroyed several times over since the 7th century and now stands as beautiful ruins. This is a painting of an angel (in a classic medieval Angel pose) in front of the Abbey ruins -and I've given a nod to St. Michael's tower on the Tor in an imaginary geography version of the layout (you can't really see it from this angle of the ruins, but I thought it'd be kinda of an idealized view of the city). The birds are English Robins - which I learned about after seeing them pictured all over the UK - they are quite different birds than our USA Robins, little and chubby, and are harbingers of Winter rather than our Spring. So I thought it'd be appropriate since this will be kinda of a wintry painting. The fruits & flowers she is holding are the holy thorn of Glastonbury (a type of hawthorn that grows only there). This is the original 12"x16" acrylic painting on 2" deep craded masonite, ready to HANG! "Angel at Glastonbury Abbey" is up for a 10-day auction starting at just ONE PENNY - ending the afternoon of Sunday, November 20th at 5:45 PM Central Time and you can see her below: You can see her below:

The other new original painting available is "Faces of Faery 180" - number ONE HUNDRED and EIGHTY (the one hundred-eightieth painting in my series called "Faces of Faery". This is an ORIGINAL PAINTING (not a print of any kind). This is the 180h in the series. Faces of Faery all feature beautiful faery-inspired creatures, and she is no exception - this big eyed beauty has a wily little pet dragon - such a cutie! This is the ORIGINAL painting - acrylic on a 6"x6" square 2" deep cradled masonite panel - ready to hang - no framing needed! The auction will end on Wednesday, November 23rd at 6:00 PM Central Time - You can see her below:
