Angel of the roses

The Angel of the Roses started as a pencil sketch in my sketchbook. When I had a moment to spare for drawing, I would add a little here, and a little there. This drawing took about six years to finish.

I love the jewel tones of the colors, and the graceful line of her wings. Many people have told me this piece looks like a stained glass window.

Stained glass window is the first thought that came to my mind. Well worth waiting 6 years for! I love your use of vibrant colors in your work.
