An Angel for me


I've been working on this for quite a while. I'm not sure it's finished, but wanted to share it here and garner some feedback. This one was so fun to do and sort of took on a life of its own.

I never know how much to write about the process, or about all the thoughts and poetry that float through my head while I'm creating. Each collage seems a synthesis of so much, to me...

oh, write down the poetry and other head chat going on - that's always the best. I love the juxtaposition and sizes of the woman and the flower and want to be able to read what looks like scraps of writing in the lower right. The color is just right - it reminds me of sitting in front of the lit tree early Christmas morning before the riot of unwrapping starts...the smell of pine, the peace of giving to others your love, happy faces, etc etc etc. That's what this picture brings up for me.

karen, this is beautiful! I love the soft colors and the pattern of her dress. Another gem by you!

I'm going to answer my tagged questions before the next post so my illustration comes up first. Penelope keeps leaving me a comment to link to a static page, so I don't want to do anything to get booted off here. I'm so computer illiterate!

This is stunning! Your work and style is an inspiration. There's just so much going on in it; the imagery and soft colours really get the message of peace across!

Karen, this is so great! I really love it! I always wanted to do a collage piece but i'm not really good at it.

Anyway, here's wishing you and your family a very Merry X'mas and Happy Holidays!

The height of the woman and the direction of the gaze unify the flowers above her and the nest. Its a great piece.
