Horn and Halo

After going through several ideas for her All Hallow’s Grim 2013… So Good, So Dark contribution, my dear Shelle looked into the eyes of sweet Angel and Devil (on the party button), and decided to “revisit the concept as a ‘marriage’ of good & bad, darkness & light… because in any sense, you cannot have one without the other. How do we know what’s good unless we compare it with bad? Light & darkness, just as night and day, are a marriage of opposites but exist working in a timeshare of dominance… These sensual creatures work as a partnership, both co-existing in harmony, for better or worse.”

Don’t you just love the way Shelle talks (writes)? I do. And I swear that every time I read her words, her sugary stream of consciousness kisses the yummiest places of my soul ;-)

My Shelle Luv hopes these beauties “go to someone who can fall in love as deeply and sensually as these soul mates… they touch horn & halo… their hair intertwines… opposites attracting… is sorta kinda obvious with this duo.”

  1. Well, I for one applaud the non-traditional portrayal of "soul mates". This revisit definitely portrays more of that connection between the two versus the first go. Thank you, Sunshineshelle!

  2. It's an interesting puzzle. Obviously, they couldn't move near home; relatives can be so unforgiving if you pick up someone from the other side of the tracks. I think somewhere with well-defined seasons, clear cold winters and hot dry summers.

    1. That's really interesting I hadn't thought of seasons (or temperatures) 'til you mentioned... yes and rellies, often the thorn in so many (otherwise) perfect couplings :)

  3. We always wanted to build a house on top of a forest covered hilltop, so we could ignore the world and enjoy our lust in peace. Unfortunately we had kids and got caught up in the worlds problems before we had the chance....fortunately i have managed to corrupt my angel quite well, so there is still hope...mwahahahaha <3 XXX

  5. This answer brought to you by a long marathon of watching Supernatural, which is chock full of demons and angels - an angel and a demon would have to build their home here, on Earth, because we are all about mixing up the angelic and demonic and all the shades in between.

    SunshineShelle's artwork is so evocative - I loved looking at the process for Entombed, and the pieces on origami paper are wonderful. But Irish Banshee is making me shiver - I love it!

    I follow!

    1. So true about a home on this planet Earth, well thought out & maybe with that mix New Orleans could be the spot ;) Thank you for your lovely comments on my artwork, it's fun to take (usually pretty bad) pics of art evolving pleased you enjoyed Lynda!!!

  6. They would build their home near Hoher Meissner, in Hesse, Germany. Frau Holle's territory, that of the Elves (& not the cuddly Kebbler sort, either). German Christians were far too efficient in killing off 'witche', & this pair would be perfectly suited to wakening the mountain's denizens once again. They even have a theme song to accompany them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ec_jQ2blRPY . They wouldn't be all that lonely, either. After all, Frau Holle enjoys the company of the Wild Hunt. They could join in! Their house would be some combination of Zeniba's (Spirited Away) ..for it's country setting...& Scary Godmother's...for it's more urban feel & because I love her kitchen.

  8. My daughter, who loves Supernatural, says they would build their home in purgatory and but also says that it just would not happen... My answer would be in they would build their home in Tennessee, which is more like hell on earth... lol. Decorated all hillbilly like. As for the art, I love two: Weeping Angel and Green Goddess Jade <3 but really, ALL of her paintings are awesome!

  10. I LOVE Shelle's art and I want this painting !!!!
    I think they would build their home on top of a mountain, in a cave. Many trees around. Big fire in the cave, (for the devil) with a big cozy moss bed. Blue open sky, for the angel, of course ;o) I think they would be happy ;o)

    1. Perfect, now I'm thinking the fire could be for warming the angel & open sky on that mountain top cooling that devil, isn't it funny how it works both ways LOL! Yes, of course, they would be happy, perfectly matched & their own secluded oasis :)

  14. If a devil and an angel were to marry. I'd like to think that they'd be hiding out on earth as "regular" people. Cute little house, white fence, barking dog, the whole nine.
