This was a special commission. The painting represents symbols for the Trinity: radiant light and sky to indicate God the Father Creator, the dove with outstretched wings for the Holy Spirit, and the cross for Jesus Christ.

I was asked to do this special commission for some well loved granddaughters. Wednesday’s post will be a second angel for another.

Earlier in my posts here, you can find Tea House I…an outing I enjoy from time to time with my aunt and two dear cousins, Jean and Joanne. This the second capture and I may yet do one more.
