I made this page when I felt kind of overwhelmed recently - developed a painful shoulder problem which made life rather difficult, and there were a couple of things on my mind as well, all of which contributed to my feeling somewhat "got at"! I found this gorgeous picture of an antique angel - I love these images, especially the pre-raphaelite ones, even gravestone angels - which began the train of thought about wishing my Guardian Angel would come around here and see off some of the problems assailing me!
I'd made this bright background with no particular aim in mind - I just liked it. Anyway, if you look at art angels are very often shown robed in deep colours, so the ones in my head always look that way. Also they aren't girls - Gabriel, Michael, Raphael .... sorry, that's something I tend to go on about. Regular devotees of these pages will quick identify that the background is done with Neocolour crayons by Caran d'ache, absolutely my favourite media.
