Angelique

This is my entry for the Take A Word challenge this week where the theme is (one of my favorites) "Angel".  Despite having numerous beautiful angel images in my cache, I created a bit of an abstract angel from bits and pieces. Neither religious nor mythical I like to envision an angel as human with a sense of  an "aura" of wings; of transcendence or the possibility of having angelic traits as called upon in life. The invisible becomes real and visible to those who care to see.  Imagery from Dover books, Holliewood and Finecrafted designs at Deviantscrap and backgrounds from Pink Lotty.

    You've manage to mix a powerful intensity & a sophisticated subtlety...

  3. Oh, what a pleasure to see your fantastic angel! I've been publishing angels during November (a challenge to make a angel card every day). My angels are traditional not so great as yours.
