Angel collage

I did an angel for Mix It Monthly where the challenge is "What wings are For" and we were asked to use real feathers. I always see angels depicted as female but my angel is a male. When the Bible speaks of angels, they speak of male angels. I don't know if all angels are male or not but I wanted my angel to be a male who was in adoration. I used the yellow in the blue to represent light because in the Bible most of the time people see a bright light when they see angels. My depiction of him is not perfect but he certainly reminds me of the reason for the season and the Christ is to adored and worshiped especially at this time of the year when we celebrate His birth. I am also linking this to Art Journal Journey where the theme is collage with writing. I hope you enjoy seeing my angel and I wish you a very blessed and Happy Christmas.

I was impressed with your use of the feathers, but even more so how you justified that yours is a male angel. I happen to agree with you. This art and the feathers, of course, are lovely.
