Watch Over Our Children

Copyright 2009-2010 @ Sundrip Journals. All rights reserved.

Watch Over Our ChildrenIt usually doesn't take me 7 or 8 days to complete one painting but it looks like this one will need even more time. Seven days now but I'm getting closer.

The painting shows a young African-American child walking through a field of sunflowers and wildflowers while being guided by an older Black angel.
Painting Details: The sky and flowing water meet and roll around her skirt into a field of flowers. There are two small butterflies floating above a sunflowers, one single white daisy. The child has small green leaves as trim for her clothing and is holding a tiny little flower.

I believe the final version will make a slight distinction between the sky and water. I may also add a few tiny details to the adult angel but other than that Watch Over Our Children is nearly completed.

Update:

Ah yes, it sometimes takes awhile but the end result is worth it.

Watch Over Our Children (final)

The colors have been changed dramatically as were the flowers but I like this version best.

Thanks for visiting,

    How can you possibly even consider that you may be an emotional bully and create such beautiful, inspiring, and soothing images???

    Thank you. 🙂

    I intend to put a print of this in my hallway. Why not put a peaceful path in the one area that leads to everything else in my house? It seems like that's where it should go.
