Painting - Oil On Canvas
Adoration of the Shepherds by Nicolas Poussin was the inspiration for Ms Simons' Angelika. This oil painting was created for a heavenly friend of the artist, whom moved from Germany to America when she was 11 years old. Her name in German is Angelika which in English means "Angel". The charmed faces of these babies are from reference of Linda's own baby. Displayed behind the sweet winged babies is a phrase "God Watches Over Us (or me)" in the German language. Ms. Simon's friend Angelika, carries this saying with her in the form of a charm at all times for guidance and solitude. These carefree cherubs will send you in the right direction, watch over and sprinkle you with entertainment!
