My Painting #17 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - September 2013 Challenge

Now we are on Day #17  of Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days - September 2013 Daily Painting Challenge.

For today's painting, I actually did start it a couple days ago, and put the finishing touches on it last night and today. 

It is called:  "Angel Wishes; Wishing You Peace".  As I have mentioned earlier, I love collecting Art Books as a way to find inspiration and as a way to practice.  While I was looking through one of my Marc Chagall books, I thought I would pick out some of my favorite images that he used and see what I could do with them. 

I love painting buildings, and the little bird was fun too.  The angel was a challenge, but I kept on going anyway.

Oh on yesterday's post, I introduced my FACEts.  Here is the very first FACEt that I painted before this 30 in 30 challenge started.  Again, it is most definitely inspired by Chagall:

Hope you enjoy today's painting.

See you for Day #18. 

Happy Painting!  Cheers!  and ... Break a Bristle.
