Angel of Hope
This painting was created as an addition to a series of angel paintings that I painted in 2019 as my contribution to the Elliot Lake Art Gallery’s “Angels Among Us” theme which celebrated the holiday season.
It weighed very heavy on my heart but I needed to release my emotions.
This native angel stands in recognition of truth and reconciliation and honors the lives of the lost children and the survivors of Canada’s residential schools. The angel brings us strength to deal with this truth, love for healing, and hope for a better future.
The moon casts its glow on us as our protector and watches over us.
The falling feathers were inspired by the lyrics from Neil Young’s song: “Birds”.
“…feathers fall around you, and show you the way to go home…”
