Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Left of Center....An Angel Weeps

Todays canvas is a design team make for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge has just begun and has the theme of Monsters. After all we are heading towards Halloween  and I love it.

And for this weeks challenge, we are so lucky to have been sponsored by the fabulous Ikes Art.

For this canvas, I painted the background with my acrylics and pearlescent paints. I coloured the angel using my copics and promarkers. I found the quote and added that on some black card.I love the way that the angel is poised on the rock, contemplating I think on the monsters that can be human. Strange I know..but some of the greatest fear, the greatest horror and the greatest anguish that I have known, as come at the hands of man. And that's why I count my blessings every day. My friends, my animals and where I live always give me hope. I found a quote which I loved concerning hope. It said that it means..hang on,pain ends. I will have to find a way to use it.

Well Virgo man has just arrived..the perfect timing for another As a car needs fuel..I need my I will be back later with another design team make. I hope that you are all having a good day. I hope my friend Sunshine is having a great the sun hopefully. So until later..take care and happy crafting.
