I'm so anxious to go back! I could use a change of scenery and a bit of inspiration.

I had this and a few other angel paintings on display in a small gallery/frame shop nearby, and it was recently returned to me. Several of the others sold, but I was kind of glad this one didn't. It's hanging next to my computer, and I like looking at all the layers of collaged papers (click on the image--all the details show up beautifully in the enlargement) peeking through the painting (first time I had tried this technique).
I also like to remember actually painting this one: a good friend let me stay at her magnificent beach house in Seaside, OR a couple months ago, and I spent dreamy hours painting away while the beach was just steps away.
