A caring, embracing angel is sheltering inside her wings the animals and nature spirits in this preserve and inviting them into the gateway by which they return to spirit.
The angel is leaning over so caringly, welcoming several happy animals back into spirit through the portal that she guards. On her wing rests a happy round-faced nature spirit.
What strikes me about these images is how artists, who seek to interpret what they experience, often develop styles that I see in nature spirit art. The angel’s positioning reminds me of the drooping, embracing images of Picasso’s Blue period – there are a lot of Picasso structure images in nature!
This angel offers her compassionate assistance at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve, St Charles, Illinois
