I was supposed to put together a show with fairies. But my life hasn't been full of fairies as much as the angels and devils. Loss and ends. Finds and friends.
I painted up a series I call #BetterAngels with winged hearts, six foot angels and a whole bunch of little thoughts on the nature of our yearning for higher things.
Wings are fragile. My #BetterAngels series includes fallen angels with broken wings, wine, and tattoos staring off into a revery and accountability on the nature of how we somehow find ourselves.
These are snapshots. Wishes. Stories.
I have painted angels for some years. Often a winged cat or winged angel dog. This 2019 series represented a culmination of all of those things.
