Wings of Many Colors

On my recent visit to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California, I saw colorful wings!

Many pieces of art in the medieval and Renaissance galleries feature angels with rainbow colored wings and feathers of many hues.  I was immediately inspired by these gorgeous pieces. Here are some of the photos I took during my visit. I hope they inspire you, too!

Tidings of Joy 6″x6″ Canvas

My first Christmas project of the year!

I sculpted two angel wings out of Sculpey UltraLight clay.  Then I took a 6″x6″ canvas and covered it with fiber paste just like I did with  these smaller canvases.  I pressed the words “Tidings of Joy” into the paste while it was still wet and flattened them with my fingers.

After the paste was dry, I glued on the angel wings.

Added some red berries, ribbon, and white tulle at the top.  I also dabbed some glue on the wings and sprinkled them with prisma glitter.

This Christmas canvas was made especially for one of Knox’s therapists. I hope she likes it!

 

Be sure and check out the two sets of Christmas cards I just added to Knox’s shop. All proceeds from his store go to Cockayne Syndrome research.

I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving!
