Music I listened to while working on this painting:

“Fly” by Ludovico Einaudi

You can listen on the MusicPlayer at the top of this post.

Thoughts for this piece:

St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Question #108 Hierarchies and Orders of the Angels

“As we have noticed, our human knowledge of angels is not direct and perfect; we cannot know angels as they are in themselves. In our imperfect way, we assign many angels to each order, even while we realize that, since each angel is a complete species, it has its own specific office, and, to that extent, its own order. We cannot discern what these specific offices and orders are. If star differ from star in glory, much more does angel differ from angel. Our classification of angelic orders is, therefore, a kind of general classification.”

Is there an order of angels that inspire artists? Do angels paint?  If so, can they use light as a medium?


Thanks for stopping by to look at my art ~Scarlett



Little Turtle in a Castle


Last summer, I visited a very special friend of mine in Wales.  He has Cockayne Syndrome, like my little Knox did, and he lives in a lovely castle by the sea with his family. I love him very much and painted this turtle painting for him to celebrate the special bond our families will always share.  Notice the Welsh and Texas flags flying together from the tip of his toy castle!

This is the 4th turtle painting I’ve done for CS children around the world. You can see the one I painted for angels in California, Germany, and France.

Turtles remind me of my little boy~I paint these with his memory in my heart and send them out with my love.

The painting was created on an 8″ x 8″ wrapped canvas.

The details for the banner were taken directly from the banner in his room.DSCF3649


And this little bear was in his stroller.DSCF3694

Love from the Lone Star State, USA!

Painting this tiny red dragon for the Welsh flag was tricky. I had a photo on my phone to guide me, but then I realized I had to paint it backwards since I put the flag poles on the right hand side!  DSCF3667





Sending all my love across the ocean today to my precious little friend and his family in Wales, UK.

I love you, Thomas ~Scarlett (Knox’s mom)
