Weekly Challenge at Inspiration Avenue

If only the whole world could put Peace
above all else on their holiday wish list.
No matter what holiday is celebrated.

But I feel like the little angel, sad that it's
probably not to be, even for a day.

Still, we can hope,
and do the best we can to make it happen!

"We shall find peace. We shall hear angels, 
we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds"
~Anton Chekov

And of course we can always remember this:
"In acceptance there is peace"

  1. beautful and very peaceful indeed!She has such a soft gentle way about her...and her expression is heart-touching..she is a pure heart and filled with true beauty!

  2. This is beautiful!

    Merry Merry!

  3. Your angel does look a little woeful, so pretty! Tell her not to worry, inch by inch the nice people are taking over the world!!!

  4. So sweet, and check you out; getting an entry in so early! I love her expression and posture- she's definitely HOPING for peace even if she doesn't expect it. I also really like the palette you used, so soft and ethereal- beautiful!

  5. I love it! So heart felt. If only we try that is the real key. To find Peace often takes Courage. Courage doesn't always Roar, sometimes it is the voice at the end of the day that says, "I will try again tomorrow". I love the post and the angel.

  6. This is so sweet! I love the sentiment. She's adorable.

  7. Blogger seems to have fixed itself. I was unable to leave a comment earlier today, but here I am now, checking and sure enough, I can let you know how much I LOVE this darling angel who has such wise words of wisdom for us. Lovely challenge piece.

  8. She is precious!
    Very sweet Magpie.

  9. This painting is truely peaceful - the colours, her expression and every soft and gentle brush stroke. Beautiful!

  10. This is a lovely piece and thoughts. The beautiful little angel is precious and fits so well with this theme. I feel she is watching over us to insure we find the peace we are meant to have.

  11. This is a beautiful picture and lovely sentiments full of truth.

    Glad to have discovered you via IA.

    Kat :-)

  12. "In acceptance, there is peace" I think I shall set the intention to lean more deeply into this reality.
