Angel Playing a Flageolet (drawing after Sir Edward Burne-Jones) and Pre-Raphaelite Angels: #Flickr12Days(poem)

    Newer Older

    To hear my son Patrick Goble's very traditional rendition of "Ave Maria" in Latin to go with this drawing, , please go to the following address: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDTNRokPJms&feature=g-all-u. I think you will enjoy the music.

    This drawing eventually reached number 15 on Explore. First made Explore on March 30, 2008, and it's still in Explore over four years later. This has been a big surprise to me, but I'm very happy about it.

    This is my version of Burne-Jones lovely angel. Pencil, ink, colored pencil, gold paint on colored paper. I applied velvet powder, metal powders, gilded braid, and paint to various mats, and painted the frame to match the predominant colors in the drawing. Drawing measures about 5 by 7 inches.


    Pre-Raphaelite Angels

    They were the angels of delight,
    Not rushing Powers of the air,
    Nor Principalities,
    Nor beings of great might.
    Mere beauty was their
    State of grace--
    A sovereignty of light.

      Hi there,
      Believe it or not I am in search of this stamp, I believe manufactured by Toybox in California. If you can help me out locating this I would really appreciate it. I'm new to flickr and have no idea how to do this.
      thanks so much

      I have seen your artwork posted here. I liked it. On my websites, I write articles about pencil drawings done by friends. Here are two of my review articles, I hope, you would like to look at.
