Art Creations Friday - Angels All Around Us


This week the Art Creations Friday challenge was this image of an angel. I really enjoy working with angel images. They can lead you just about anywhere. I have been trying to make Bukeh images with hearts and stars etc. for backgrounds. I am slowly getting the hang of it.

My digital collage is about the fact that there are angels everywhere. All around us if we are willing to be open to the idea. Maybe they are just the person who happens to show up when you are walking through the door with an arm full and get the door for you, or the person who waves you out of the parking lot in rush hour, or the person who compliments you on something you are wearing after you have had a bad morning. My collage says open your heart and mind and they will find you.

Love your background! Did you happen to see the movie several years ago with Meg Ryan and Nicholas Cage about angels? Sorry-I am blanking on the name right now--it was wonderful-angels were everywhere-sitting on top of buildings etc watching over us.

Elizabeth Golden said...

Janet I did see that movie and the name escapes me. I loved the way they had angels everywhere. I also loved it when he went swimming in the ocean. So cool.
