St. Cecilia by Guido Reni at the Norton Simon Museum of Art + Big Eye Angel Fairy WIP...

St. Cecilia by Guido Reni 

St. Cecilia by Guido Reni is one of my favorite pieces at the Norton Simon Museum of Art.  She is the patron saint of musicians and was said to hear the singing of angels.  She is here with a violin, she was reputed to be able to play all instruments.  I love this painting so much!

This is a work in progress view of my angel fairy.  I've worked on the wings a bit.  This is actually a very small piece,  it measures approximately 4.5"x4" for a specific endeavor, but we'll see if I finish it on time...
