Angel Cadence


In 2008, after a life and death struggle with MERSA, my family gave me a camera and a photoshop program.  I found I had been given a special aptitude for catching recognisable shapes in the clouds.  Then, using Photoshop, I would enhance what I saw, so others could see it too. 

The angel above is one of my very first cloud paintings.  At that time, I used the mouse as my paint brush.  Today I use a Bamboo tablet--which is much easier!
Here you see the angel as I first saw her hanging over the alley outside our kitchen door.  There's no doubt this is an angel!

Have a lovely Sunday!

It's incredible what you can see in the clouds. After talking to you, the next day I saw a dragon cloud in the sky while I was sitting in the car waiting for Zumba.

oh Beth, I am so glad you lived through MERSA! Ugh. i had to look it up and it does not sound good. I once had a near death Staph infection also, Toxic Shock Syndrome.

Your angels are astonishingly beautiful and full of spirit!

Yes, you certainly do have a special talent for this unique artform, starting with what you see in the skies. But you subtly transform them into magic! MERSA sounds really nasty.

From something ugly sprang something magical and beautiful. This has always been one of my favorites of your cloud paintings.

Your gift of seeing things is wonderful... whenever I am outside and the sky is beautiful, I remember you. I wonder what would Beth see in these clouds...
This angel looks like she is protecting you from further worries by her outstretched arms, beautiful shot!
