Stairway of the Angels

12” x 16” Acrylic on canvas

I present to you my first completed painting of 2021! “Stairway of the Angels” is all acrylic on canvas and perhaps, a flashback to my earlier style.

Butterflies have always represented “angels” to me. Often appearing just when I needed a sign, or a reassurance that I am not alone, that my guardian angel is with me.

I generally steer away from gloomy topics, but Covid-19 death stats are grim in the US. The numbers are getting worse and the victims are completely random, any one of us can be taken. That said, I am astounded by the number of people in my community that are not taking this seriously. I have personally lost 5 people close to me to Covid-19 so far, this is not fake news folks.

Please be safe and take all necessary precautions to protect yourself and those you love, stay home and create!

Video added after original post, thanks Mike Ross, for the comment about this song, fitting!



  1. I love the black and blue! Have you ever heard Angel From Montgomery by John Prine? The Bonnie Raitt version is the best.

    “Just give me one thing, that I can hold on to. To believe in this livin’ Is just a hard way to go.”
