“The Angel and Three Bears” was created in the summer of 1995. It is an oil painting on the finest Belgium Linen using the same old master techniques that have been the signature hallmark of this artist since the beginning of her career. Actually this is the remainder of canvas on the roll from which “The Lamb and The Lion” was selected. It was painted in Glenda’s first years back to the studio after “The Lamb and The Lion” was acquired for it’s permanent church display and she had temporarily retired from traveling and speaking about it. She was painting principally angels in those years, although this is only one of four that were painted with the time, dedication, and applied skill to be characterized as a classical master painting. It is equal in every way to her famous paintings of the 70’s and 80’s, which are mostly now in museum collections. The latest one of those to be donated to a museum in 2015 was appraised for $25,000 for insurance and tax purposes.
Glenda considers this to be a creative self-portrait referring back to the age of three when she decided to become an artist, to make herself available to creating some great painting. We all know that wish became true.
The frame is an exquisite custom crafted piece of art in itself, originally costing around $800 in 1995. It has been displayed in her gallery in Fort Worth and all of her subsequent museum shows since its creation. Both the painting and the frame are in perfect condition and conservational status. The back side is shown in the details below for your inspection, although, it will be professionally sealed with a dust cover for its final delivery. The dimensions are: (canvas size) 30″ x 24″ (outer frame dimensions) 38.75″ x 32.5″
The cost for shipping will be separately determined, and will depend on its destination. For your information, the finished box will weigh about 30 pounds, and ship by FedEx. It will be insured for the price you request but no less than the price you pay.
Our minimum bid for this painting is $2,000. This minimum were set at 10% of the appraised and insurable value of the piece based on the sale of comparable pieces in the past. It’s estimated and real value will, of course, increase dramatically in the future as the overall value of all the artist’s work appreciates.
