Angel Crossing

I've always been fascinated by angels - and how we humans imagine them. I decided to do a painting featuring an angel and for some reason, decided to show her crossing the street. In the course of painting this, I felt as if I was creating my own little city - there are lots of small touches in this painting - from a faint outline of people in the upstairs window to shoppers on the other side of the street - one man is running. There's a double decker bus on the street and anyone familiar with traffic lights will recognize that I am not depicting an American city scene. Across the street from her, there is a street sign - Heaven Street, and if you look at the traffic signal, you'll see there is an angel depicted. There are angels all around us - they're just not always as obvious as the one depicted in this painting. There are stories going on in this painting that each viewer may interpret differently. I hope you enjoy looking at it.
