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. This version was inspired by a pose of SilvieTstock's on DeviantArt and another friend's proposal of a mask-themed contest. Together, they reminded me of my macabre angels' tendency to reveal their wounds while concealing their faces. The two become one with this angel, who is the anonymity we all fear in the end... particularly artists, one might guess, given how much of ourselves we strive to leave behind.
