This piece is amazing. I am thoroughly impressed with the deep sense of emotion emanating from both figures. The sense of deep serene loss nearly jumps from the woman, and I cry almost every time I look at this piece.

Very well done!!! It's very intimate but very romantic - the wings around her gives a very warm feeling of comfort and protection. Very beautiful; I love it!

Thank you again for commenting on my gallery. I wanted to convey a sense of mysteriousness in this piece. My best friend seems to think that the woman is afraid of him, because she has her hands crossed over her chest and her eyes are closed, or she could be savoring the moment. Who knows.....

So sad, and incredibly sweet. I especially like that you didn' put a face to the angel, as though it's not as solid. Very nicely interpretted.
