My Green Wings!

The Money Angel says: SUPPORT THE ARTS!

Where have all my wings gone? My favorite pair I lost on an air plane (left them in the overhead compartment)! Someone must of liked them because they were never  returned. Maybe they needed them more than me…I miss them nonetheless.

My other favorite wings I gave to my buddy Stewart because I had to move & he liked them. They were green. I had just won the “GREAT GREEN BALL” annual window dressing contest, fundraiser for the arts, in Asheville, NC.  My theme was “Give Your Green To The Asheville Art Scene”, so, I dressed as the “Money Angel” to support the arts. It was super fun!

But I’m wingless again! Back to the sewing machine…I’m ready for a new pair!

THE ART ANGEL ~ HEAVEN

SMILEY FACE SKY by Bethann Shannon 2008150-dpi-etsy-frida-by-bethann-shannon-001.jpg

I love the SKY!

The sky is HEAVENLY!

 I live for clouds!

 Each sky I see is a work of art, each with a feeling, each with a story…

some filled with intense drama!

 Some simply like a storybook!

I find great happiness gazing at the sky.

It almost feels like a longing !

When I was 21 I was a flight attendant for TWA.

 It was my favorite job ever…because of the sky !

(and I also love people)…

I was thrilled and excited to be up there! So beautiful!

I found abundant joy in that job…

then I was laid off.

Now, I look up everyday and still think Heaven is just Heavenly!

I paint it when I can and love the painters who paint it well, like Magritte,

and my artist father Joe Shannon…

I started taking daily pictues of the sky this month

and will start a collection of excellent skies!

The 2 places I lived or visited that had the best skies was in

MONTANA, which is called “BIG SKY COUNTRY”…

and ASHEVILLE, NC, called “Land Of The Sky”…

both places had breath taking skies

that put you in a total humble state of AWE!

Third up for me would be San Francisco…

amazing drama with the clouds & fog over Golden Gate Bridge!

OH! THE SKY!

“SIGH”
