Guardian





We usually talk about guardian angels in peaceful terms. They’re the ones that pull our children back from the busy street or watch over us in a storm. They act in silence, unobserved, easily dismissed as chance. Then sometimes... sometimes I think of them as fierce protectors, ready to unleash a terrible fury on those who would threaten their charges. It’s probably just something we tell our kids, but do you want to take the risk of crossing the wrong Guardian?

This is one of the two or three image ideas rattling around in my head that got me to finally stop pining away and actually create something. Enjoy.

Note: I was never quite satisfied with the background in these piece. I wanted something a bleaker, and I wanted more of a "rays of heavenly light" effect for the halo. My skills have now advanced to the point where I can address those, and I do plan on coming back to this piece in the future. I have promised the first print of it to a good friend and her daughter.
