Angel Panel

Morning in the studio began with me falling asleep over my journal. Feeling quite uninspired, I did some large scale, spontaneous, non-dominant hand drawing. (See bottom picture.) One of the creatures in the drawing reminded me of the many eyed creature in one of the Old Testament prophetic books. I have heard of it referred to as an "angel." It has often struck me that whenever people see an angel in the bible, they are terrified. Yet, the depiction of angels in popular art is anything but frightening. I have always liked the description of the many-eyed (plus many wheeled) angel in the Old Testament. The clay panel was inspired by this image.
