Do you remember this picture from an earlier post? I think it was the end of June. After having fun doing the iconic art on Saturday, I got to thinking about angels and how much I like the angel art that is out there in bloggy land. I might as well jump in and do some too.
But the only picture I could find of a child, that had the proportions I was looking for, was ...you guessed it, me. As I said, you might remember this picture from an earlier post, so I figured I would use it and see what I came up with. I really wanted the proportions to be correct, so I (gasp, cough) traced my face onto vellum paper. I am sure the purists out there would be aghast at something like this, but hey, it's folk art, y'all. We listen to the beat of a different drummer, anyway. So, a traced face led to some crazy Betty Page type hair ( I never liked the sausage curls in this picture), the addition of a bit of Heavenly light to represent a much needed halo, and this crazy little kid became an angel.
So, that's the art for today. Take care and remember, there is a bit of angel in all of us. Let it come out, it's ok. Love yourself and all your little angels.
