Angel Sisters

What is inspiration? Some say it is the whispers of angels.

This leaf gently floated down to my feet the other day.

To me, it looked like angel wings. Two angels standing so close together that they were only showing one wing each. See them? Blended as one by love.

I have two wonderful, loving sisters and to me they are angels. They have each taken a turn in this life standing close to help me fly. 

Merry Christmas and keep your eyes and ears tuned to the angels all around you. They're usually disguised as someone you know.

About the painting:

All coppery and iridescent, when seen from different viewpoints, the colors in this painting playfully shift and play hide and seek. After all, that's how angels are when you catch them out of the corner of your eye.

Here are some closeups to show the rich texture, but alas, the copper and iridescent effects can only be experienced in person.
