The Guardian Angel with Boy contemporary icon is a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted work of art, each individually signed by the artist. A delightful addition to our collection, we are proud to offer such reverent and heart-warming paintings made in such a creative medium. At 5 by 3.5 inches and bound by a leather frame, this painting is ideal for a child’s bedroom, a reminder that his guardian angel’s watchful gaze is ever-present. The brightness that this painting exudes comes from the artist’s choice of medium: she uses a process called “reverse oil on glass”. This touching and charming painting is an ideal christening gift, wedding gift, or gift for new parents.
A Painting Perfect for Boys and New Parents
One of the reasons that this painting is so perfect for children is that the painting itself emanates a profound joyfulness, accessible to children who are very much in tune with that kind of joy. This painting depicts an angel with a beautiful, intricately patterned robe and bright wings open to the air. She is giving her blessing to a young child. Because each of these paintings is unique, yours may be slightly different from the one pictured on our website, but not in any substantial way. Each painting is hand signed by the artist.
A Reverse Oil Painting on Glass
Reverse oil painting on glass is an art technique by which the artist paints a picture on the reverse side of a glass surface. Realistic reverse paintings are extremely challenging to create since, for example, in painting a face, the artist must put the pupil of an eye on the glass before the iris, exactly the opposite of painting a picture. The artist is not able to correct any errors made earlier since the surface between the glass and the paint already applied is now completely inaccessible. An artist in Poland who specializes in religious themes painted this and many other reverse oil paintings on glass. Each of these beautiful paintings are enclosed in handmade frames with a leather back made by the artist’s elderly mother. No two paintings are alike.
