Protect Me by windfalcon Protect Me by windfalcon
Things have been a bit difficult lately. I started this painting after having a really, really upsetting day, and from the moment I started drawing to the second paint hit paper, it became such wonderful therapy - the type that can only come from art. This painting actually took a lot longer than usual, as I didn't want it to 'end,' but eventually it was complete, and now here it is.

The title comes from a desire I had on that day to just be protected. I just wanted to be curled up in a pair of strong wings and shielded from all the negativity and fear. I hope if any of you are feeling afraid or in pain, that this painting will give a bit of light and hope to you.


Watercolor and colored pencil on illustration board, 7.75 X 10.5 inches

The only thing that could make this work of art better is the story you gave to accompany it. While I'm very sorry to hear you were in distress, what a beautiful and poetic product of that emotion...

This is absolutely gorgeous. The panoply of colours in the feathers and the flowing lines work perfectly together to create something at once ferociously wild and elegantly stylised. Brilliant!
