Angels weep for us…

Angels is the Three Muses challenge this week – and as the weather is stopping us from going to work, etc., a little light cleaning and a fair bit of artplay is in order!

Angel is from Cherry Pie Artstamps and always looks so sad – hence “Angels weep for us…” The main angel is stamped onto a page torn from a Swedish dictionary. The page I chose has words like ‘immortal soul’, etc. as definitions, although I couldn’t actually find ‘angel’! The white images are foam stamps and the latin text is from MaVinci’s Reliquary.

The entire page is many layers of watercolour washes and glazes and a bit of Neocolours. No acrylics were harmed (or used) in the construction of this page!

  7. Rosie, your angel may be sad but your wonderful page is a celebration of your art which is just fantastic. I love the way you have “filled” the image of your angel with newsprint. In fact, I love everything about your scrumptious work.

  22. Rosie, your angel piece is fantastic! The colours and the details are beautiful, and the idea of angels crying for us makes one think.

  23. ah, poor little sad angel. Mine is sad too – she has a broken wing. It’s no wonder they cry when they see all the things we get up to…

  29. I really envy you for your artworks. I tried doing some arts like this but It’s not as good as yours. So I promise myself that I will just keep on visiting your blog to take a look at your art work.

    It’s also nice that you have a concept on every art you do.

    Keep up the good work!

  35. So beautiful, Rosie! I love they way you layer your colors and textures! I hope the weather either gets better, or at least that you enjoy more “forced” art time at home in the meantime! XOXO
