Stone Prayers

I just love this piece! I started out to make a photo transfer, and wanted to try a glossy photo, so I sprayed water on some cotton drapery lining and on the photo, then burnished the photo down onto the fabric. The transfer was only partially successful, but this is what is left on the paper. I thien used a white gel pen to suggest the features. I love stone angels, and collect what I can for free, and plan on adding more to my collection after my vacation. There are a couple of cemetaries nearby...

Oh its so dreamy and ethereal....I love stone angels too.....Don't you love the scene in Phantom of the Opera when she is wandering through the cemetery and there are more stone angels than you can shake a stick at,....and all filmed in that moody, frosty blue lighting...
