The fallen angel.
From time to time an image arises complete with meaning and symbolism, like a visual poem.
Experiencing the angel qualilties of my own small child led me to muse upon the wonderful moment of transition from innocence to physicality, and the image came complete; the sensuality of colour, of smell, of earth, and of blood.
This painting was done from imagination, seen more as painted image than as a three-dimensional event, and is a subject I should like to revisit.

To see a very large version of this picture, click on the image and hold down the mouse. From the menu that drops down, select "Open Image in New Window". Having already been downloaded, it should open immediately.
