I'd like to dedicate this image to my mother, a lovely inspiring soul who has been there for me at the best and worst of times. She is an avid lover of Turquoise, the December birthstone, and I channeled quite a lot of her giving and kindness through this.

She really adored the Seasonal Angels and therefore this series has taken on the flavor of that one with its art nouveau flair.

Turquoise is a stone of healing, purification, and communication. Just as white narcissus, holly, and poinsettia symbolize innocence, everlasting life, and hope. The crown on her head symbolizes Saint Lucia, who gave hope to the suffering during a time of darkness.

May the Angel of December light your darkest hours with bright blessings.

I was greatly inspired by the wonderful birthstones/monthly flower series by ~mistressofspam and *windfalcon. I also utilized *syccas-stock's gorgeous series, Ker's Candles. They are all muses beyond compare.

Watercolor, Color Pencil, Pen & Ink. 8.5x11 inches.

I really like that, looking around for some inspiration, my mother passed away when i was young, and for years ive wanted an angel tattoo in commemoration (angels were one of her 'things';). I hope mine comes out even close to this good.
