Busy, Busy, Busy and Angel Walking

"Angel Walking"
14" x 11", Oil on Board

I own a fixer home in Texas.  I put it up for sale in the "need to remodel" stage because it is located in an area that has recently zoned Commercial and my thoughts were that if someone wanted to remodel the little house into an office, they'd want to change the bathroom and kitchen to fit their needs.

But the home did not sale.  I think it was kismet that it had not.  It probably meant that I needed to finish what I started.  So these past couple of weeks I've been working on getting the house fixed up.  Unfortunately I don't have very many tools nor body strength nor the know-how to do everything.  And because it had been vacant the first thing I needed to do was dispose of the dead bugs and that is NOT the easiest task for me.  ick ick ick...

This painting is one I did just before the remodel job; it was a commission and yes, very similar.  I was very honored to be asked to paint this angel, not just once, twice but three times.  This is the four one and angel has brown hair in this one.
