We All Have At Least One

Please turn up the music.

Have you ever been faced by a looming obstacle that was impossible to move or too high to climb

or a river much to wide to reach your destination?

Chances are you have, and you felt totally

and helplessly


Or maybe you or someone close to you has had a brush with eternity, but it just wasn't your time yet to say good-bye

and you walked away unharmed, only to see the world in a more vivid light

in all its splendor


and promise.

And like the song suggests,

No matter how far you are, I'm near
It makes no difference who you are
I'm your angel

I bet there WAS someone there all along, right by your side:

your angel. Perhaps it was a friend, a family member, a stranger, an animal companion. Somebody is watching over you

who is willing to lend a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, and a heart to rejoice. Penny from Angels Door has captured the art of angels in the two preceding paintings titled "Callia" and "The Dreamer." With a soft stroke of gentleness in the eyes and a celestial suggestion of angels' wings, Penny's work unifies the sacred with the familiar

and the inexpressible with the harmonious and measured

that reminds me that I need not look beyond the eyes of another kind human being for a touch of heaven.

Thank you dear, sweet Penny.
