This 18" x 24" oil on panel is based on the painting of the Guardian Angel watching over children crossing a precarious bridge. I did some research on the original painting and could only find that it was German - titled "Heilige Schutzengel" translated "Holy Guardian Angel". I couldn't find much else out about it other than there are several variations and many people have a print of it hanging in their home. I wanted to do a modern version of children getting off the school bus on their way to school. The little girl is not quite sure about the whole idea, but her brother has a reassuring hand on her shoulder. Behind them is a Guardian Angel to protect them from harm and danger. Think this is starting out OK.
If you have any information about the original painting, please let me know. Also - all comments and critics of my work are always very much appreciated!!!
Thanks for looking
