Our Angel has her wings


My commiserations to you and your family Michele, but this is a wonderful painting to commemorate your mother

I am sorry that you have lost your mother, I recently lost my wife and recognise some of the signs. But what better way to remember a loved one and thank you for your thoughts for others.

A marvelous tribute to a loved one.

Another stunning portrait from you Michele. The other portrait you did of your mother in a mask remains one of my favourite paintings on this site. Both have been done with such sensitivity and skill. Your mother's eyes reveal her soul, just lovely. Very sad for your loss.

What a beautiful, evocative and compelling portrait. So sorry to read about your mother, but what wonderful way to have her with you . I love your work and your portrait has invited me to re visit and enjoy your gallery. She must have been very proud of your talent

I can only echo what has been said Michele. Your work is always thoughtful and sensitive and this tribute is no exception. X

From Heather's comment I had a look at your previous portrait. Wonderful. This is also very good, but in a different way. Poignant. Thank you for sharing this very personal moment with us. All the best.

So sorry to hear about your mother, I know what it's like. A beautiful portrait, wonderful title and great tribute. Very kind thought for others Michele.

Thank you all for your beautiful comments - I really appreciate them all x
