For a long time, my most well-know work was the Devil Girl tile mosaic windvane. I felt like she needed an angelic sister to balance the family. So last winter while the snow piled up to the eves of my studio I created this sleeping angel. I knew exactly what pose I wanted, but, not having access to a live model I had to search the web for an image to work from.

I’d have thought this was a common enough pose, but it took forever to find.
