My recent surge of inspiration for making rustic angels is due in part to the comments of my grandson. I have said it before and will say it again. Leave it to a 5-year-old to give you a better perspective of life. A few weeks ago my mother-in –law passed away. She of course, was grandmother to our daughter Beth and great-grandmother to Beth’s son (our grandson Owen).

So Owen was asking his mom about what happens when you die. Beth explained about going on to another place to be with God and the Angels. Owen thought about that for a while and said mom I believe Grandma Ressie has gone bowling. This kind of took Beth by surprise, she said well why do you believe that. Owen said well that’s what makes thunder and lightning when God and the Angels go bowling. What a great thought!

I absolutely feel so good about working on these angels .They are not only fun to see develop right before my eyes but also they seem to truly be Angels. They certainly are made with much heartfelt attention and love.

My plan is to keep them coming this year. The wand carried by each angel is of course designed and handmade by me in my studio; the face is carved from a Silver Maple branch. The body comes from recycled tin and the wings are selected from fine art paper usually mounted on heavier material for a full body look. Finally all the parts are assembled onto a ruff sawn cedar plank and framed. They are signed on back with the date and name of piece, a bracket is in place for wall mount display.
