Valediction by AngelaSasser Valediction by AngelaSasser
:new: ORIGINAL PAINTING NOW UP FOR AUCTION! [link]
| Prints, Original Art, and Products :pointr: [link] |
TWICE or thrice had I loved thee,
Before I knew thy face or name ;
So in a voice, so in a shapeless flame
Angels affect us oft, and worshipp'd be.
Still when, to where thou wert, I came,
Some lovely glorious nothing did I see...


- Excerpt from "Air and Angels", John Donne

11x14 in., Watercolor on Illustration Board

I love the quote you chose to accompany your painting. It is emotionally very amusing. The angel reminds me a bit of Haldir from the Lord of the Rings.
