Friendship

12" x 18"

This painting is very special. I believe there was some divine intervention involved. Normally I paint a single angel but for the first time, I painted two angels in the same painting. Within two days of painting "Friendship", I received a Facebook message from a woman named Mary in California, she wrote:

"I have a friend who's little girl is fighting round two of leukemia. She is super amazing and we have held each other up through some really tough times over the last year. This quote is the one we always go back to: We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another. ~Luciano de Crescenzo

When things get tough (as they are for her today) we say, "I have one wing holding you tightly around your waist and I'm flapping my wing extra hard for you right now." I wondered if you have a painting of two angels like this with brown hair - one with hazel eyes and one with blue eyes? I know you probably don't, but it never hurts to check right?"

Wouldn't you just know it, one of the angels had blue eyes and one had hazel eyes! To be honest, I had never heard the Luciano de Crenscenzo quote before but it was just perfect for those two friends and for my new painting. I sent an image of the painting to her and she cried. Needless to say she bought two prints mounted on cradled board with the quote added for her friend and for herself.
