My Guardian Angel


I just love this painting, I used it on one of my angel posts for the Writer’s Challenge. It is by Joseph Karl Stieler 1781-1858. He was a Neo-Classical portrait painter. Isn’t this a beautiful picture of a guardian angel  with a child asleep on her lap? I try to picture myself like that or with Jesus, when I have trouble sleeping.

It has a wonderful portrait quality about her blue, almost periwinkle robe and white night dress on the girl are perfect in keeping an airy and light feel to the painting, like a cool breeze on a warm summer night. His peace. Rebecca Jones
