Three Muses Challenge 32 - Angels

This week Marie is our host at the Three Muses and she has chosen the theme of Angels.

I seem to be drawn to these pale, sparse landscapes at the moment and when I found this crouching angel on the internet the whole thing just came together.

Credit to CAJ Designs for everything excluding the angel.

Thanks Marie for a great challenge.

Ooooh and here is another one and the angels this time were filched from Botticelli's Birth of Venus (Dover free to use). Other elements are courtesy of Efie.

Thanks for looking.

You really have a gift for composing surreal masterpieces, Ann. This is stunning in it's color simplicity and composition. Bravo! Hugs, Terri xoxo

I agree with Terri's comment. I'ts so wonderful to see how you have made this style entirely own.

Eye-catching.

I can only agree with Terri and Rian that you have made this style your own. Your "angel" surreal is spectacular. I couldn't help inventing a story to go with it. Lady's car breaks down in the desert. She calls on her guardian angel to fix it. He is unable to do so and feels terribly ashamed so all he can do is go into crouch mode and feel sorry for himself. Fantastic artwork and ideas, Ann, as always.

A brilliant surreal work of art- sublime use of a soft delicate palette- thought-provoking and wonderful Ann!

Kimmie said...

your pale sparse landscape looks very warm and sunny! A nice change of scenery from dreary winter! Lovely job!

Judy said...

You are the 'tops' at surreal, Ann! Like Marie, I had similar story in mind - only the angel didn't watch over her too well & she ended up as a pile of well eaten, by the vultures, bones!!

Elegia said...

I love your surreal style in this image. Not too much in it so every detail comes up. Very very impressing art work, Taluula!

LiveArt said...

Very surreal! So original; I could gaze at it for a long time. It invites making up a story to go along with it!

A Rolls Royce in Heaven?
If we believe Marc Cohen than it is like so:
"If there´s a god up in heaven, he´ll got a silver Thunderbird"
;0)

Jackie said...

They are both fabulous, and yet so different! Great work.

Julia said...

Another great piece in that fantastic style of yours! LOVE it!

Priscilla said...

I really like you have the angel crouching on the rocks and your tire tracks match up so well with your car. Thanks for sharing your talent. I am new to these challenges and just started entering..so much inspiration with all these wonderful entries.
