My angel made an angel...

Part of my daughter Laura's Christmas gift to me was this...

She made it as she was teaching her middle school students (when she was student teaching last month) how to make the angels.

To think that she would give me hers is, well, WONDERFUL.

Here is the face up close...

Not only notice the closed eyes, and the mouth singing, but notice the rose the angel is holding.

This next picture shows the hair. Laura said she used a garlic press to make the hair.
 (Who would have thought?)

Oh, you can see where you can put a candle in it.

My daughter amazes me.
Check out her blog to see some more art.
(She's doing a 30 day drawing challenge.... well, here it is (I hope you can read it)...

You'll be glad you did. (She's on Day 5 today - it's great.)
Oh, please vote in my newest poll, if you haven't already. (upper right)
