Wesley served as the prototype for the 2020 Christmas Angel Collection. My idea of a vertically aligned narrow painting came on the heels of the 2018 Collection in which the Angels settled in on a horizontally aligned backdrop , 10”x 2o” x 7/8” splined traditional canvas.
Two things that NEVER cross my mind when designIng this annual collection.
1. The box dimensions necessary to mail the treasures out to collectors across,the United States.
2. Working with them as a group in my Painting room.
Consequently, we had to go on a specific Box search to ensure the safe delivery of these one of a kind paintings… with their unique dimensions!
I had NO floor space in my painting room for 6 weeks… juggling all these 24” paintings in various stages of completion!
As I mentioned, Wesley was the first Angel I painted in the Collection.
In this Collection ridgely extends the Angel portraiture around the sides of the canvas… depicting part of the Angel’s sleeve and wing on her right side and the wing on her left side. Iridescent pearl highlight the wings and her halo. Using embossed
paper and a vintage crackling antique process, ridgely truly creates a Christmas treasure.
Paintings are wrapped and packed in archival bags with special care and attention. The back of the piece are painted black with specific documentation about the Original Angel. Each Angel is an Original depicted by a ‘0’ next to her signature on the front of the painting.
Painted on a traditional splined professional canvas, the painting lies flush to the wall with no frame needed! The Angel arrives to your home ready to hang with a sawtooth hanger attached to the back of the painting.
The painting is finished with a minimum of 3 coats of Liquitex Professional Matte Varnish. Do not hang in direct sunlight and you will enjoy for years and years.
