Weeping Willow’s Overwhelmed- the broken people

Overwhelmed is just that. There are people that have to deal with illness , addictions, stress etc. But there are those who love them and carry the weight of the world, who despite everything keep life moving forward. This is my uncle, my father, my friend, myself. The pose shows it all. The wings, with over 1400 flame coloured leaves, strong and bold, guarding, forming a heart shape. Within this angel is a Weeping Willow Heart painted teal representing ovarian cancer,  a tiny ladybug for the memory of an artist friend. She got to see this added but sadly passed before the completion of this sculpture. She is forever remembered and a part of this series and an influence in my art and life.
