“Angels we have heard on pie...”
It was like one of many days in the studio. I stared out inspired to capture a beautiful culinary image of a lemon tart for a kitchen decor project. That's right, a simple, sweet lemon tart covered in swirls and waves of meringue. How hard could that be? Simple, as long as I kept my sweet tooth under control. I proceeded with the initial stages of the photo shoot and once I was satisfied with what I had captured, I proceeded to review and conclude which would be my final photograph. I scrolled along intently looking for one that captured the 'wow' factor us artists live for.
It wasn't obvious at first, but as I carried on with my task, one particular image kept poking at my intuition and calling me back to look at it.
But then…could it be?
Lo and behold, there it was
— an angel.
To be honest, this happened months ago (photo taken 2007), but I felt so attached to this treasure, that I've had a difficult time releasing it for all to see. However, the Christmas holidays are about believing and giving in the spirit of a miracle that happened over 2000 years ago, and if this is indeed a miracle, then far be it from me to prevent it from being shared as an inspirational gift to all today.
Dear Journal: Today I saw an angel in my pie…
