Once upon a time....

When I painted my first "Make-Shift Angel" back in 2007, I didn't expect it to become a series, but time has proven otherwise. Indeed, they are my favorite paintings of my own and are quite often the most personal. The first angel was inspired by a dream that became a novella, and every angel since has told their own tale via scars and stitches. It was only a matter of time before one took charge of the chronicle. My thanks to B. Samani for modeling.
