Had a fancy to paint an angel, so this was painted on an old canvas which already had a half-finished painting on it, that I’d lost interest in. The underlay was used to give the angel form and shadow, allowing me to paint light on dark.
The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone. ~ George Elliot
