Angel in the Junkyard

Steve Scarborough's avatar Steve Scarborough

My ArtPrize entry is in three different mediums. Oil painting, photography and colored pencil. We all process/appreciate each of these mediums in very different ways. For example, we like that a painter has spent a lot of time not only learning their craft, but carefully mixing colors and using various brushes to create the work of art, one stroke at a time. There's something romantic about the process. Also there are many styles of painting, from impressionism to realism, abstract art, and so on. I've been working on this project for 5 years. Right after I met my future wife, Linda, I was in an auto accident and could no longer work at my profession and retired. My life was in chaos and was uncertain. I asked Linda to pose for me and added the wings. The junkyard represents my life and the angel is the order and beauty and love that Linda had brought into it in my time of despair.
