Archangel Of The Silver Bullet, Recession Angel #1

4x4" mixed media, SOLD

OK, I am starting on this year's angel series for the Holidays. And my guess is that not many folks are feeling all that festive this year with the constant brain upload of bad news about the economy, the recession, unemployment, blah, blah, blah...Are we sick of this...or what?

So in an effort to be mindful of the the wallet, irreverent about the issues and still make art for the people out there that "get" me, I'm introducing the Recession Angels. I have been collecting "recession bits" from the news that has now become a part of our language (I mean really, did you ever even say the words underwater mortgage before last year?). And I'm turning these bits into angels. Small angel paintings that have little pieces of old newspaper (1910 on this one) collaged into the background or the wings. Each canvas is 1 1/2" deep and the sides are painted and collaged. The Recession Angels sell for $100 bucks and I'll pick up the shipping.

My way of thumbing my nose at too much bad news and starting the holidays off with a little twinkle in my eye!
