Among Three Angels, 6x4 inch Acrylic Painting by Kelley MacDonald

All the bases are covered if you've got these three on your side.  Health?  Relationships? Abundance? Work?  Children? Grief/Loss?
I am enjoying painting in this very different manner for a few paintings… so very many layers of colors, and all the while keeping color, value, temperature in mind. Plus, can I tell you how satisfying it is to mix up a color and SLATHER it on with a palette knife?  MMMMmmmmMMm.  Tomorrow's will be more traditional (I THINK).

This trio brings to mind, though, my daughter and her two close friends growing up.  They were peas in a pod, one blonde, one light brown, one dark brown haired.  At age 29 they are all still close, though the darkest 'angel' lives across the country, and is married, with a babe on the way - we are all going to be vicarious Grandmothers in our group!


  1. I wish these three could would gather around my daughter right now. A great trio to have in your corner.

  2. What a sweet post....and great series Kelley! Always fun to play in the paint!

  3. This is such a dear painting. And you did a great job with the palette knife.

  4. aren't grown kids just the best?! I like this painting even more now that I know its "story." Thanks for sharing.

  5. I'm enjoying watching this series develop Kelley, cool paintings and the stories are fascinating!

  6. This is very meaningful to a lot of us. Thank you.
