New Images: Arrivals & Bright Angel


Mom called every single painting of angels -“gestures”. She was driven to try to capture the way that they moved and interacted with the world around them. What do their motions look like? She would “see” it and then try to illustrate it. This painting has more angels in it than any other that she did. The more you look at this one the more movement you can see, as well as a lot of hidden things in the cloud and flower structures. This is also, I believe, telling a story that begins on the lower right and moves counter clockwise. But I am just guessing.

Bright Angel

This image is a bit of a mystery. I know that mom explained it to me but I was probably running on about 3 hours of sleep for the 5th day in a row. I think that the angel in yellow is her mom. But on the right you can see a greenish shawl or perhaps a second angel. I only see one set of feet though. The thing that really makes this image pop though is how bright the yellows are in the original. Hence the title.
