Angel Descending, Original Abstract Angel Fine Art Photograph
My abstract series called Angels of Light is being featured on Mondays in March and April. This photograph is called “Angel Descending.” Some angel scholars say that angels have wings so that we can understand that they have the ability to leave celestial heights and the most elevated dwelling to approach human nature.
Surveys indicate that 55 percent of Americans, including one in five of those who say they are not religious, believe that they have been protected by a guardian angel during their life.
This idea for the Angels of Light series came to me when I was decorating our house for the holidays. I noticed how beautiful the light looked on one of my angel statues. “Angel Descending” was photographed using a Canon camera and a lensbaby lens—a selective focus lens. I combined several exposures in Abode Photoshop to complete the image. The quote reads “Angels descending bring from above, echoes of mercy, whispers of love.”
Prints of this artwork are for sell on etsy.
“Angel Descending” is signed and dated on the back. It’s not matted or framed. A professional lab prints the image on metallic paper. The watermark isn’t on the final print.
