Gothic and Angelic

I have some new paintingss that were just recently listed with OOA. The first has gothic feel. I call it Love Lost III. I've done two others along this same theme. 

This other one is an Angel I call "Angel with Wings of Music" She actually happened by accident. I wasn't sure what I was planning do with the composition. I Started out collaging the background with some old sheet music I had found at a flea market in Albuquerque, NM. I decided after I had it on there that I really didn't like it, and so proceeded to rub it off. The effect was wonderful! It now looked like a transfer. When I started to paint I made sure to rub the paint thin over the face and wings. The wings almost look like fairy wings. I especially love this painting and I hope it goes to a good home!
