Celestial Flight

- by Kerry Lynn Nelson

This week's theme: Wings

Not too long ago, to fly you needed to born with wings. Flight was magical. We marveled at the creatures that could fly and longed to follow them. It was their wings set them apart, and so we bestowed wings on the things that we felt were special or had power. Beings that were other than us. Things that had meaning. We can now take to the air but we still can't really follow. And so we bestow wings because we marvel at the creatures that can fly.

Art: Celestial Flight by Artist Kerry Lynn Nelson
The beautiful, mythical winged horse Pegasus soars through the starry sky. With thick, juicy strokes of oil paint, this original miniature oil painting takes on the jewel-like luminosity of impasto oil painting, yet, still retains plenty of fine detail! This one-of-a-kind small artwork is suitable for framing or keeping in album collections. "Celestial Flight" is an OSWOA™ (Original Small Work Of Art) oil painting, and, as with all OSWOA art, it is an original miniature work of art in the set 4x6 format that is also thin enough to fit into photo album sleeves . Please visit the OSWOA™ web site (see link below) to learn more about these wonderful small art works and the artists behind this new art movement! In this auction you are bidding on 1 original artwork which is painted in oil paint on a gessoed and sanded 1/8 inch thick birch plywood. It is signed on the front, and, titled and signed on the back. Thankyou for looking and good luck bidding!
