Grieving Angel, 8x6 Inch Acrylic Painting by Kelley MacDonald


I've always loved this sculpture - you can read about it's history HERE. I think grief is a hard thing - and different for everybody.  I know we want to quickly get through the 'stages' and be 'normal' again.  But even if we try… it doesn't work that way.  It takes the time, and cost, it takes.  I view it as an honor to the person/animal I'm grieving over.  
When I lived in Hingham, I would love to roam the cemetery and view this Angel.  I thought… the people who grieve can give their anguish over to this angel, and rest.  She will weep, not letting the deceased be forgotten.
I love cemeteries - have I told you that?  But when I 'go' I would like a seat-type sculpture, with a marble sleeping cat on one side of it.  :)


  1. This is beautiful, Kelley! What a stunning monument to have in a cemetery. And the thought of an angel weeping at anyone's passing is somehow comforting to me.

  2. Dear Kelley - beautiful painting. What a great story too. Love your thoughts on grief...very wise words. Hope you have a good day. P.S. I am fond of cemeteries too.

  3. I love monuments and how lovely this is. The colors of mourning too. Congrats on the sale, beautiful painting.

  4. HI Kelley, You made me think of my mom resting under the snow in very cold Minnesota. In my mind, I am going to place this grieving angel beside her. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Your Grieving Angel gave me chills Kelley, it's' just beautiful!
