Fallen Angel

8x10 acrylic on canvas

Our ultimate hero with a tragic flaw. Our angel, both heavenly and destroying. He is everything to everyone, yet nothing to himself. His eyes speak of that "ancient sadness" and his face could launch a thousand ships. He's as old as the stars, yet no life could be long enough, for no matter how much good he does, to him it will never be adequate to fully redeem his soul. But that's the best part, isn't it? Indeed, true beauty is in his paradoxical glory.

This painting was inspired by Edward Cullen from the Twilight saga, Angel from Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Anakin Skywalker from the Star Wars saga, and birds - who sore so high, so close to the sun, they burn.
