I finished up my November series. Overall I am happy with the group of work, the color story was consistent- monochromatic blue. I began the series colored pencil and realized by accident that the marker I was using wasn't water soluble...which ended up being a happy accident because it created a watercolor effect. Towards the middle of the month I began working with some mixed media, first by hand painting some paper flowers (day 16-17) and adding them to the colored pencil and marker drawings.
From there it was more mixed media. I started cutting out the angel bodies and adding them to different patterned paper backgrounds, later including additional layers of the fun papers.
I posted a giveaway on my Facebook art page to give the majority of the angels away. The theme for the giveaway is 'helpers' based on a quote I love from Fred Rogers;
For the giveaway I invited folks to nominate people that they consider to be 'helpers' either by their job or through their service to the community. I did something similar last November with my #WONDERfulWomenJLG series, with a spin off set of angels, and it really made me happy...so I did it again- except with my actual daily pieces :)
