Original for Sale :  The Womb of a Rilkan Angel  —  $ 30.00



Created in 2004  —  10 x 7 inches  —  watercolor

Statement:  I adore Rainer Maria Rilke’s poetry, and I had been reading around in the Duino Elegies about the time I made this watercolor sketch.  To me, the shapes that emerged felt very strong, generative, and maybe even fierce with dark wings– and so I thought of Rilke’s angels and their qualities in the presence of human beauty and suffering.  What fierce compassion would be born from the Womb of a Rilkan Angel?
