I painted these angel panels for a Nativity presepio last year. Looking back on the photos of the panels this year, they don't seem as bad as I thought they were. I almost could have made them into Christmas cards or something. At the time of installation I was somewhat embarrassed about the paintings - thinking they were too schmaltzy. I never was asked back to paint more panels, so I wondered if the work I did wasn't quite right - it may not fit in with the display as it evolves from year to year now. I wasn't at all insulted about not being asked back mind you - I was more than content to do the work and move on.
