Angels are not a recurring theme in my artwork, but forming a wing that you could see something hanging from underneath crept into my thoughts. I made a skeleton of wire, hung some “memory beads” from the middle of it then made a tissue wing and collaged bits of paper to it. After stapling the skeleton to the board, I loosely sewed the collaged wing to it. I really like the way you can see the bits and pieces hanging down. This is painted on a 24×24″ cradled artist board made by my husband, Bob.
As an aside, Teesha Moore announced that the 2012 Artfest in Port Townsend will be the last. She is “listening to her gut” and moving in a new direction. What that is, she doesn’t know so if you have ever wanted to attend Artfest, sign up now for the grand finale.
