SHOP Original Hand Painted & Decorated Wooden Plaques

For those who may be called to Angels... these are very unique gifts, one-of-a-kind paintings, handcrafted with love in my Santa Fe, New Mexico studio. heart Each plaque is gift wrapped and includes a hand written note from me to you.

The Angel depicted on the plaques is based on my original oil painting "Angel", which was donated to the Santa Fe Artists Medical Relief Fund's Silent Auction a few years ago. This painting was inspired by my trip to Italy, as it seemed at every turn there were Angels. Angel sculpture, paintings, home decor items and of course many historic and spiritual references - I was truly captured by the beauty I saw in all of them.

Original oil painting of "Angel" shown with my daughter Laura

I invented a process that allows me to paint the Angel using watercolors, on a fine art paper that is permanently adhered to a wooden plaque. The result is my interpretation of an angelic icon.

I decorate the plaques with gold metal leaf and acrylic paints. Most plaques also have raised ornamentations that are covered in metal leaf for dimension and texture. The backs of plaques are either painted or sealed with shellac, stamped with my Maniscalco Art Studio insignia, and hand signed and dated. All plaques are sealed with archival varnish or waxed for protection. *Please Note: All Angel plaque and gift sales are FINAL - no returns or refunds.*
