St. Gertrude's Angel

St. Gertrude's Angel   9" x 9"  oil on linen panel
Last week, I was with a friend in Grangeville, and she kindly drove me around looking for interesting photos and generally seeing the sites. We went to St. Gertrude's Mission and though it was a gray day, took a few pictures of it's red domed architecture and a few of the statues in the front garden areas. The gray light created soft shadows and the curve of this angel's back, with her lowered gaze was a perfect little statement of grace. I tried to do it justice in this oil.
