Artist's Description

I need an angel of slumber to cure my night-owlish ways, and shut my eyes by 10pm : )

October 2011

This work started out on paper. The angels were two scrapbook images I had in my mess of scrapbook paper. The hands I drew and the bush I drew. There are some decorative corner designs – they are stickers. I then scanned the image and processed it in picasa first using focal b&w tool, and then graduated tint tool for the light from above. I then transferred to picnik and added two different textures and a tarnished copper (greenish) vignette. And that’s how it came to be.

I have always loved angel forms. When my grandmother lived with me and was dying with Alzheimer’s, I did her room in pink victorian lace paint and stenciled soft white cherubs all around the top of her ceiling. She loved it. I LOVED her. I DEDICATE this work to my precious grandmother, Marie

This work reminds me of Enya’s Song- Angelswritten below

Angels, answer me,
are you near if rain should fall?
Am I to believe
you will rise to calm the storm?
so great a treasure words will never do.
Surely, if this is,
promises are mine to give you.
mine to give…
Here, all too soon the day!
Wish the moon to fall and alter
I should know
heaven has her way -
each one given memories to own.
Angels, all could be
should you move both earth and sea
Angels, I could feel
all those dark clouds disappearing…
Even, as I breathe
comes an angel to their keep.
Surely, if this is
promises are mine to give you.
mine to give…
