This is the story of the Angels….Angel Fire Sculptures….and how they were born…
Two years ago, I asked for recommendations on where to go in Agnes….I always went to the SW, but, I was obviously needing a change…My gallery owner and his wife in Birmingham offered to let me part in their driveway at their lakehouse, plus, they said…”You have to meet Barry”.
Barry and I hit it off immediately…He is one of the few people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting who is a true creative….he and his wife have turned their land into a magical fairy land….you cannot turn around without being surprised and delighted by their creations.
I asked Barry if he could make me a feather sculpture out of metal…His answer surprised me, AND lit a fire (literally) under me….”No, but I will teach you how”.
I stayed a month….creating paintings, creating angels…having one of the best times of my life….
I was obsessed. I applied for an LLC….Angel Fire Sculptures. I booked the Dallas Market, the Las Vegas Market, and a couple of Vintage Market Days.
Nothing but fucking crickets.
I KNEW they were my golden goose.
But, they weren’t….I was focused on selling them….more than I was focused on the energy that comes through me when I create them…and the energy that they bring to their new adopted people.
In March, I received clear guidance to put them out in the public again. “The world needs our energy of hope. Our compassion. And our love.”
“They” were right.
Since March, over 160 angels have been adopted….Clearly, my guides and angels know what they are talking about….LOL…..they usually do, but, I can be super bull-headed.
I can’t wait to get up every morning and create….It is the same feeling that I got when I first started painting….
This is my latest creation….I’m blessed with a dear friend who knows just how much to push me, without totally pissing me off…and, so TA-DA…here it is:
This one was so channeled…. They were very specific about the number of “Beings” – 22 – a Master Number in Numerology. And hearts….four to be exact….(look closely….you will find them all!!!)
This sculpture is about unity. NOT division. Right now there is more division than I have ever seen in my life. I have so many friends that are so adamant about their way of looking at this whole pandemic as RIGHT, with no wiggle room. THOSE people are way too full of EGO for me right now.
You never know who an angel is… It could be a neighbor who smiles and waves when you are feeling all alone, it could be someone who helps you load your car full of metal when you are obviously struggling, or, it could be your littles who tell you they love you on FaceTime.
These Angels want us to remember that they come in all shapes, sizes and colors.. look at the beings in the sculpture…no two are alike. Just like us….and they are perfectly imperfect…just like us…sigh…they really are coming in to teach us all something very important. This virus, and it’s my two cents worth only, is here to teach we are all one. Of course, theories abound, and there is probably a bit of truth in each one, but, we need to be discerning about what we believe for ourselves…. because, we are all here to play different roles. Vax, no vax, 5G, blah blah blah ..just pay attention to YOUR intuition. Just remember that others believe their stories, just like you believe yours, so, have compassion.
Here is why they are created in the manner that they are:
These Angel Fire Sculptures are created imperfectly, for a reason….
Some are missing wings….Some have tiny wings…. others have a full set. And yet, they are all perfect in their own imperfection.
Just like us…
Just like life…
We all have imperfections. Some physical. Some emotional. Some spiritual….
But, we are perfect. Just the way we are.
There is beauty in all of us. WE may not see it, but others do.
Take time to tell those in your life what you love about them….
I believe that I am creating these to remind us, that there are always angels amongst us…
Look for the uniqueness, rather than how someone is not the same.
I always wanted to fit in…but, how can I stand out, if I fit? How can I make a difference in my own unique way, if I am just like the others?
Which is why each of these angels are unique…each individually handcrafted so that none fit into a mold…
A dear friend summed it up perfectly: “Real life and emotion comes with splatters, boogers, blood, struggles, joy and laughter.
Otherwise, life is as straight and rigid as a pipe fence. Well built, clean smooth welds, but about as engaging and as inviting as a sharp poke in the eye.
Weld away and let the life and laughter be your guide. Goddess is giggling with joy at your new medium.”
May We Walk Together As One
