Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more...
--William Shakespeare, Henry V, Act 3, Scene I.


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. In this instance, I fell in love with this angel's back and didn't want to cover it up with the full-sized wings I'd initially planned on. After setting the painting aside for several months (a rarity), I realized that smaller wings were the answer to this angel's meaning all along.
