How to be 'good' can be so confusing. Traditionally, we were told to be good so we'd snag a good man. Talk about yer mixed messages...coz I know lots of good men who like bad girls. Bad girls get lots of attention. Mind you, lots of men like good girls when they're bad too.  That ol' whore/Madonna thing. Yup, lots of fellas like bad girls...They might even call them Angel.

So, this Angel was discovered in an old ad from a 60's magazine. The fellas come from other magazines from that era and our Angel's wings are bits of metal that I found on a local beach. Doesn't she look like she deserves to be worshipped?  Is she floating on a cloud or wading through dry ice? Will her wings help her rise above or aid in her fall from grace?  Good or bad? Angel or No Angel?

Angel is one of 20 pieces featured in my exhibit When She Was Bad, showing now until July 22nd, 2011 at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design. Angel is an acrylic painting on board with vintage ephemera, found metal and measures 11"x14". My work is for sale, so for more information about Angel or any of the other works on this blog, email me at
