New Small Piece: "Clarion Call"

Here is a small piece I just finished for the SVU Fundraising Gala entitled "Clarion Call," oil on canvas, 20" x 30."

Of course, I dithered on the title for a while. "Moroni" was the obvious choice, but I thought another title, "I saw another angel fly," might be more in tune with the inspiration for the piece, but my husband thought that was too wordy for a title. So I settled for "Clarion Call" because it needs to communicate the heralding of this last dispensation. If anyone has a vote on a better title, PLEASE DO COMMENT.

I think that the title "Clarion Call" is good. A clarion call is a special kind of appeal. In this case, the angel is appealing to the best in all of us; calling to us to repent and come home.

I can only hope my writing is as beautiful as your painting. Please feel free to visit my blog and form your own opinion
