I do go into a bit of a production mode when creating these, which is unusual for me (when you're making 40-60 angels it's a necessity!). But for the most part, each ornament is different. They are all created from the same general design, but I try to choose a few different colors for the bodies each year. Each angel has hand-painted accents and usually those accents are created with sparkling gold-colored enamels.
Our autumn has been beautiful in Northern Utah this year. I think this year's Woodland Angels are a reflection of the vibrant browns, golds, rusts, and blue skies we have experienced. So much of my creativity is influenced by nature, and these angels are no exception.
Woodland Angels will be available at upcoming markets and events:
- December 1 & 2, Winter Gift Market, Bullen Center in downtown Logan
- December 8 & 9, Cache Studio Art Tour (multiple artists' studios will be open to the public, including mine)
I'll also be in my studio on Artists' Sunday, November 26. Artists Sunday is a day to encourage you to forego the Black Friday/Cyber Monday chaos and shop with local artists. You're welcome to drop by my studio from noon to 4 that Sunday, or contact me to schedule an appointment for another time.
Thanks for stopping by! Dana
