In honor of our first episode of Hometown, we invite you to learn more about “The Archangel Gabriel” by Sheila Diemert. This piece was used as part of our social media graphics to promote Hometown.

Sheila has painted several versions of “The Archangel Gabriel” painting. The first one was commissioned as gift. Sheila used a variety of bold colours and textures to give a sense of light, life and power to the image. The textured background contrasts with the smooth lines (signifying peace and a calming effect) of the angel. Prints of this painting can be ordered at or an original painting can be commissioned by contacting Sheila through her website,
