Birth of an Angel

Birth of an Angel

Inspiration: This painting was created in memory of my grandmother, Atlanta King Taylor.

Scene: The house at the bottom is my grandmother’s house (where I grew up). Her church is to the left, and the field of crosses to the right represents all the people who passed on before her that will be waiting to greet her. The Angel is gently carrying the new born soul, of the soon to be angel, up to heaven. The City of Gold is made up of churches from around the world. God is the sun. The bird is the guardian angel released from its service as it flies back to Heaven.

Poem: "Birth of an Angel" - This poem celebrates the continuing life of a soul once released from its life on Earth:

Angels Series - Using this as my "signature" painting, I created the "Angels Series" as a memorial in my grandmother’s name. Donations collected are for Lower Cape Fear Hospice Foundation in her memory.
