Sacred Angel of Comfort by TereseNielsen Sacred Angel of Comfort by TereseNielsen
This piece was created for one of my favorite projects of all time called "Angel Quest: The Acts of Kindness Game"! It's a set of 100 cards with 100 acts of kindness that anyone can do. Some of the quests are as simple and beautiful as smiling or giving someone a hug and some require a little more time such as picking up trash in your neighborhood or writing someone a letter that's made a difference in your life.

I got to be the art director and designer for Angel Quest. We had 30 amazing illustrators create original angel images for this project. Every different ethnicity is represented among these angels, which I just love. Angel of Comfort is one of the pieces that I did.


The medium is acrylic, colored pencil and oil.

Please check out my blog for the latest on Angel Quest.

Love the art nouveau-ish touch to stunning realism. I think it's those sparkles that make this extra amazing. The luminosity around her head  is also great.

I nearly floored when I found this searching randomly on DA. I was given one of your prints when I gave birth to my first born son. To at least know of/meet the artist is truly an honor. Thank you so much for creating this piece. It is one of my fondest memories, and one of my favorite artworks. I currently have it framed ,and mounted in my bedroom to always remind me of what is truly precious.
Thank you.
