20 Angels on Wood

A grouping of vintage golden angels in an antique wooden box..which years ago had another purpose of holding 7-Up bottles. Now with a soft aged worn patina , embellished with angel figures and shell buttons and golden chains to keep them from flying off. At top is a small old handmade shelf, now used to point upwards, and topped with a star. Made and found elements help dress this up, and a bit of gold paint.  The overall size is 27" by 12" by 5".

Henry V111

Henry V111, finished, except for alittle ear work and a final matt sealing of his face. I changed his beard from mohair to clay, and like it better. Now he has his sword and glove, after giving up his eating utensils. So, I guess he is almost completely done...

Waterloo in a Printer's Drawer

This is an antique drawer that I've wondered what to do with for a few years. Then I found a set of vintage plastic figures and I knew they could have a war in that drawer. Maybe it is Waterloo. Gold leaf and  found elements add to the look. 17" by 22", set for hanging on the wall. What fun!
