The Blessing by Ironshod The Blessing by Ironshod
I've just finished this angel painting called The Blessing. Angels do not have to be associated with a particular religion or indeed any religion at all. They can be symbolic of a thought or wish, and seen as guardian figures. Here I painted the angel holding a sword to symbolise a request for protection and strength. I hope you like her :)

Thanks to `mjranum-stock for the use of his photograph as reference when painting the figure. It was very helpful to help make a natural pose.

Hi Anne. I love the talent you have, you are my favorite illustrator (well you're the only favorite). I have a question / permission / request: 
Can I take one of the illustrations (specifically "The Blessing" in Deviantart) for a cover of a novel that I have on Wattpad? 
Do I have to pay anything? 
Thank you and happy day.

Hello, I love your art Anne, please would you tel me what programs do you use on your paintings and what is the size of the canvas? Do you paint by hand on paper first or do you use graphic programs immediately? And do you have some videos of you painting? I would love to see your art in progress. Have a beautiful day. Love Jennifer <3

Those Words go so well with the picture - I wish you had been by, at the time I was trying to express an opinion - Anne !! your words would have silenced someone - somewhat better than mine
